Georgia lane closures now in place for holiday weekend

By AccessWDUN staff

As of noon today, construction-rleated lane closures on Georgia's interstates and major state routes have been suspecned for the Memorial Day weekend.

The Georgia Department of Transportation said the closures will remain in place through 5 a.m. Tuesday, June 1, 2021. Motorists should be aware that crews may still be working nearby. 

GDOT officials said this particular holiday weekend is considered to be one of the state's heaviest travel times. Traffic deaths are up, and Georgia DOT continues to urge all drivers to Drive Alert Arrive Alive. That means – no matter how far they travel – drivers should always be sure to buckle up, stay off their mobile devices and drive alert. These simple changes in driving behavior can prevent crashes and improve safety on our roadways.

Rest area and welcome center restrooms are open for the weekend. From time to time, a rest area facility may be closed temporarily for service. The traveling public should be cognizant of social distancing when visiting rest areas and welcome centers. 

Motorists needing HERO assistance in metro Atlanta or CHAMP service on highways in other regions should call 511 to reach the Traffic Management Center, Georgia DOT's primary center for incident management. Operators provide real-time statewide information on Georgia's interstates and state routes, including traffic conditions, incidents, lane closures and delays due to inclement weather. Callers can transfer to operators to request assistance or report incidents 24 hours a day, seven days a week. More information is available at  www.511ga.org.
