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.
