ATLANTA (AP) State transportation officials say they're planning to suspend road work near shopping centers to accommodate Georgians looking to save money during the upcoming tax holiday period. <br />
Officials say construction work will be suspended from Friday night to Saturday night within five miles of shopping centers or major shopping districts throughout the state. <br />
Department Commissioner Keith Golden says the agency is ``glad to offer some relief from lane closures as families prepare for school.'' <br />
GDOT officials say drivers should still exercise caution as heavy traffic is expected throughout the state. Transportation officials say emergency-related lane closures are still possible at any time.
