The Georgia Department of Transportation will suspend construction-related lane closures on interstate highways and state routes for the New Year’s holiday to reduce the traffic crunch.

The suspension of closures will start Thursday, Dec. 31, at 5 a.m. and continue until Saturday, Jan. 2, at 5 a.m.

Some long-term closures will remain in place and construction activity may happen along roadsides.
