The Georgia Department of Transportation announced Sunday that to ease Fourth of July weekend traffic congestion, all construction-related lane closures on interstates and major state system highways would be suspended from July 1 at 5 am to 12:01 July 5. They remind motorists that crews may work in proximity to some highways and safety concerns may require some long-term lane closures to remain in place.
Also, incident management or emergency related lane closures could become needed at any time on any route. To get free traffic information including traffic conditions, lane closures, and delays for interstates and state routes in Georgia, dial 511. A Georgia 511 app is also available for both Android and Apple devices.
