To ease Thanksgiving traffic congestion statewide, the Georgia Department of Transportation is suspending I-75 construction related lane closures, heavily traveled state routes and roadways near major shopping centers, malls, and shopping districts from 5:00 a.m. Wednesday, November 23 to 10:00 p.m. Sunday, November 27.

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.

“We typically see an increase in roadway fatalities during heavy travel holidays, and with traffic fatalities up again this year, drivers should slow down, drive alert and take every precaution to protect themselves and their passengers,” Hancock said. “Drivers, put down the cell phone and make sure you and your passengers buckle up. And please watch for people on foot. Pedestrian fatalities are on the rise as well.”
