GDOT to suspend construction lane closures during Independence Day weekend

The Georgia Department of Transportation is suspending all construction-related lane closures on interstates throughout metro Atlanta during the Independence Day long weekend.

The lane closure suspension will begin at noon on Thursday, July 2 and will continue through 10 p.m. on Sunday, July 5. During that time, there will be no lane closures for construction activities on interstate highways, and closures will be limited on state routes, according to a press release from GDOT.

Some long-term lane closures will remain in place and construction crews may be working on emergency repairs or other projects.

Those planning to be on roadways during the holiday weekend can call 511 or visit  to learn current traffic conditions.
