August 28, 2014

Here’s some good news for travelers during the Labor Day holiday.

The Georgia Department of Transportation announces all scheduled and ongoing construction and maintenance lane closures in Northeast Georgia will be suspended for the Labor Day long weekend, beginning at noon on Friday, August 29, and extending through to 5 a.m. on Tuesday, September 2, 2014.

Georgia DOT urges travelers to call 511 for updated information about this maintenance operation or any other construction project on interstates and state routes.

Georgia 511 is a free phone service that provides real-time traffic and travel information statewide, such as traffic conditions, incidents, lane closures, and delays due to inclement weather.

Callers also can transfer to operators to request assistance or report incidents 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
