The Best Amusement Parks for Families in 2017

Family Vacation Critic, TripAdvisor’s family travel site, has just named the Best Amusement Parks for Families in 2017 – naming the best parks in the U.S., and sharing the year’s newest attractions and highlights for every age group.

“Amusement parks are one of the most quintessential summertime activities for families,” explains Lissa Poirot, editor-in-chief of Family Vacation Critic. “But for those traveling with family members of various ages – including kids-at-heart – finding a park that caters to thrill-seekers and the younger set isn’t always so easy. This list includes parks that successfully cater to both, and those that also have exciting new features for the 2017 season.”

I-75 Safety Enhancement Projects Underway in Georgia

The Georgia Department of Transportation announces work has begun on a safety enhancement project along a portion of I-75 in Catoosa County beginning at Exit 350 and extending to the Tennessee State line.

The project is intended to improve safety and visibility along
this portion of the interstate by:

  • removing overgrown vegetation that encroaches on the shoulders and slopes;
  • reducing trees and bushes within rights of way to safeguard motorists and provide adequate room for vehicle
    recovery if someone leaves the roadway;
  • ensuring the visibility of warning, information and instructional signs; and
  • removing overhanging trees and/or branches that may fall onto the interstate during inclement weather, or cast shadows onto the roadway and prevent the sun from quickly drying the moisture off the roadway in case of winter weather.

The Department also awarded a landscaping contract for beautification along the north end of I-75 from Exit 353 in
Catoosa County to the Tennessee State line. The project is designed to create a more aesthetically pleasing area for visitors entering the Peach State.

“These two projects and others like them in northwest Georgia add up to these two things – safer mobility and a better quality of life for all our residents,” said State Transportation Board Member Roger Williams.

Dinosaurs Are Coming To Stone Mountain Park

After a 65 to 230 million year hiatus, Stone Mountain Park, Georgia’s most visited attraction, today announced plans to debut its latest addition, Dinosaur Explore, set to open March 30 and run throughout the 2017 season.

“Most of our guests are probably too young to remember the last time dinosaurs inhabited Stone Mountain Park,” said Michael Dombrowski, general manager of Stone Mountain Park. “Our newest attraction brings the wonder and excitement of these prehistoric animals back to the park in a way that offers families a fun new way to explore and learn.”

Dinosaur Explore will feature 20 dinosaurs representing 14 species, T. rex meet and greets, baby dinosaur interactions and a dino dig play area. In addition, there will be an all-new indoor experience: Dinotorium.

Inside the Dinotorium, guests can interact with dino rangers, learn about different dinosaur habitats, visit the Dino Nursery, feed baby dinosaurs and play games. Kids are invited to join in the learning fun by becoming junior dino rangers.

The prehistoric creature collection will be located behind the Dinotorium on wooded trails where families will discover giant dinosaurs that move and roar just like their ancient ancestors. The exhibition includes favorites like the king of the dinosaurs, Tyrannosaurus rex and a gentle, plant-eating Brachiosaurus that towers overhead nearly two stories tall. The collection also includes a three-horned Triceratops, a ferocious Allosaurus, a winged Pteranodon and many more.

Dinosaur Explore opens March 30 for a limited time during 2017, and admission is FREE with any paid daily Adventure Pass or Mountain Membership.

Also making its debut at the park March 30 is the loveable herd from Ice Age in the new “Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs™ 4D Experience.” Sid, Manny, Diego and the rest of the crew embark on an action-packed adventure when they discover a lost world of dinosaurs.

Paleolithic Stone Mountain Park

Stone Mountain was created by an upwelling of magma from the Earth’s crust roughly 300 to 250 million years ago. Dinosaurs arrived later, between 230 and 65 million years ago. Georgia is known to have been the home of several coastal species of dinosaurs.

Expect Night Detour For I-75 Construction in Georgia

The Georgia Department of Transportation is advising motorists on I-75 in northwest Georgia of a night detour off I-75 North at Carbondale Road/Exit 326 in Whitfield County, scheduled for Thursday, January 12, 2017.

Traffic will be detoured off the northbound lanes of I-75 onto Carbondale Road to accommodate work on setting the beams on the new bridge over I-75. This detour will be in place from 10 p.m. until 2 a.m. It is weather permitting and subject to change.

This bridge work is part of a project to widen and reconstruct a roundabout on Carbondale Road, beginning west of Redwine Cove and extending Tilton Road. It also includes the construction of a bridge over I-75. Work on this project began late December 2015.

The entire project is expected to be completed by the end of September 2018, at a construction cost of $18,139,653.

Georgia Preps I-75 for Winter Storm This Weekend

Responding to the potential for the season’s first significant winter weather event, Georgia DOT crews have pretreated all major interstates, including I-75, across middle, east and north Georgia, spreading brine mixture. Brine is a mixture of salt and water is used as a preventative treatment and is intended to limit the bonding of the ice to the pavement. Brine operations started today at 7 a.m. on I-85 and 185 from the Alabama/Georgia state line and I-75 from Henry to Bibb County. These tankers will also treat various other major secondary state routes throughout our 31-county district area. Bridges and overpasses are included in the treatment plan.

District personnel, local equipment operators, highway maintenance workers, mechanics and supervisors will begin working 12-hour shifts at 7 a.m. Friday and continue in the area until the State Maintenance Office and Georgia Emergency Management Agency determine any threat of winter weather has passed. Citizens should expect to see vehicles deploying brine and also traditional salt and gravel measures throughout Winter Storm Helena. We will have our crews strategically placed in locations where they can quickly spread the materials on all the major interstates and state routes. But we must have the public’s cooperation in this effort. We cannot spread the materials if we are stuck in traffic; and without the materials on the roadway before the snow hits, we lose a valuable tool in fighting the effects of this winter storm.

Overall, motorists are cautioned to be aware of black ice that may occur whenever there is moisture on the roadway in freezing temperatures. This is especially important after the storm leaves and temperatures drop Saturday evening.

Drivers should also watch for Georgia DOT crews working to clear snow and ice from interstates and state routes. These employees are working in a work zone and need to be safe. Do not pass a Georgia DOT dump truck spreading the salt/gravel mixture, as gravel may kick up and could break car windshields. Motorists should follow at least 100 feet behind Department vehicles and be extra cautious when driving through inclement weather conditions.

Georgia Restricts I-75 Construction Lane Closures for the Holidays

The stresses of the holiday season are upon us. And Georgia DOT aims to ease traffic congestion and driving anxieties with suspension of construction-related lane closures on I-75, heavily traveled state routes and roadways near major shopping areas and tourist locations from 5:00 a.m. Friday, December 23 to 10:00 p.m. Monday, December 26.

Restrictions will also be in place for New Year’s weekend from 5:00 a.m. Saturday, December 31 to 5:00 a.m. Monday, January 2.

The Department reminds travelers to exercise caution as crews may still work in proximity to highways; and safety concerns may require some long-term lane closures to remain in place. Also, incident management or emergency, maintenance-related lane closures could become necessary at any time on any interstate or state route.

Georgia DOT advises motorists that – in the event of a crash or breakdown – to never get out of the car on a freeway, unless your life is in imminent danger. Pull onto the nearest shoulder as far from the travel lanes as possible and call 511 for HERO assistance in Metro Atlanta, or 911 for medical emergency service anywhere in Georgia.

Georgia’s Move-over Law requires drivers to move-over one lane when a law enforcement, emergency vehicle or construction crew is on the side of the road and displaying flashing emergency lights. If it is unsafe to move over, then slow down below the posted speed.
