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.
