Georgia Department of Transportation –
To ease potential Memorial Day weekend traffic congestion, the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) will suspend construction-related lane closures on interstates and major state routes starting at noon on Friday, May 28, and continuing to 5 a.m. on Tuesday, June 1, 2021. Motorists should be aware that crews may still be working nearby.
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 Georgia roadways.
While traveling through Georgia, please remember that our rest area and welcome center restrooms are open. From time to time, a rest area facility may be closed temporarily for service.
The traveling public is asked to be cognizant of social distancing when visiting rest areas and welcome centers.
