Because of expected heavy Thanksgiving holiday travel, the Georgia Department of Transportation is suspending all construction-related lane closures on interstate highways and primary state roads from 5 a.m., Wednesday, Nov. 25 through midnight, Sunday, Nov. 28.
“Georgians are exceedingly patient with our construction throughout the year,” DOT Commissioner Vance C. Smith, Jr., said in a release. “We appreciate it very much and enjoy giving them these well-deserved breaks from lane closures. We hope everyone has a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving.”
The department asks travelers to exercise caution as heavy holiday traffic is expected throughout the state. Crews may still be working and equipment may be staged near roadways.
