GDOT suspending lane closures for holiday travel
Thursday, May 22, 2014

ATLANTA (AP) -- Georgia Department of Transportation officials say they're restricting highway lane closures as the summer travel season begins.

Officials said in a statement Wednesday that the department is suspending construction-related lane closures on interstates and major state routes beginning at noon on Friday, ahead of the Memorial Day travel period.

Officials say the restriction will be in place through Tuesday evening to help accommodate drivers throughout the state.

GDOT officials say the American Automobile Association predicts that 31.8 million drivers will be traveling along roads across the country during the holiday weekend.
