Holiday road work

To help motorists better enjoy July 4 and the holiday weekend, the Georgia Department of Transportation said it is restricting construction-related lane closures from noon on Wednesday, July 3, through 5 a.m. on Monday, July 8.
Georgia DOT reminds travelers to exercise caution due to the heavy holiday traffic that is expected throughout the state.

Though lanes won’t be closed, crews may still be working in close proximity to highways, and safety concerns may dictate that some long-term lane closures remain in place.

Visit or call 511 on any phone for free, real-time information on traffic conditions, incidents, lane closures and delays due to inclement weather.

Traveler information also is available at a toll-free number for callers outside the state, 1-877-MYGA511 (1-877-694-2511).

Georgia 511 provides statewide traffic conditions, route-specific information and estimated travel times.
Additionally, 511 callers can access transit providers, major airports, ride-share organizations, Georgia tourism information and 511 systems in neighboring states.

Callers also can reach live operators to report congestion, request assistance or report incidents 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
