DOT to suspended lane closures for holiday weekend

November 23, 2021–12:05 p.m.


The Georgia Department of Transportation is suspending lane closures on Georgia interstates and state routes from Wednesday morning until Sunday evening.

These statewide lane closure restrictions will help to reduce traffic congestion during the Thanksgiving holiday.

While construction related lane closures will be suspended, the department reminds travelers to exercise caution as crews may still work near highways, and safety concerns may require some long-term lane closures to remain in place.

In addition, incident management or emergency, maintenance-related lane closures could become necessary at any time on any route.
