To ease potential Memorial Day weekend traffic congestion, the Georgia Department of Transportation is suspending construction-related lane closures from noon Friday, May 22, 2020 through 5:00 a.m. Tuesday, May 26, 2020 on Interstate highways and limiting lane closures on state routes that directly serve major tourist and recreation centers.
“Travel over the long holiday weekend has the potential for higher traffic volumes as families plan trips closer to home due to various ongoing travel restrictions across the country. Motorists may be taking to the roads in higher volumes than have been seen in recent weeks to explore travel destinations in our own state,” said Georgia DOT State Construction Engineer John Hancock. “Furthermore, motorists should be aware that crews may still work near highways and along roadway shoulders and that some safety concerns may require long-term lane closures to remain in place. Also, incident management or emergency maintenance-related lane closures could become necessary at any time on any route.”
