The Georgia Department of Transportation has released some links for updated lane closures and construction schedules that are going on over the weekend, so plan accordingly.
Special events: One particular event happening over the weekend is the "8 Tour" featuring Incubus with Jimmy Eat World on Saturday, July 8, between 5:30 p.m.-9:30 p.m.
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 smartphones out of reach until you complete your drive. And wear your seatbelt.
- Seek traffic-reducing commute options like carpool or public transit. You can utilize 511ga.org or GaCommuteOptions.com
- Use extra caution in work zones: pay attention, slow down, and watch for workers. Work zone safety is in your hands.
