To survive summer construction, Georgia DOT offers the following tips:

· Plan ahead. Before you get behind the wheel, call 511 or visit 511ga.org for real-time information on active construction, incidents, road conditions and more.

· Drive Alert and Arrive Alive. Keep the smartphone out of reach until you complete your drive. And wear your seatbelt.

· Seek traffic-reducing commute options like carpool or public transit. Visit 511ga.org or http://GaCommuteOptions.com/.

· Use extra caution in work zones: pay attention, slow down, and watch for workers. Work zone safety is in your hands.

Have a safe and fun weekend.
