Those planning to travel over the July Fourth holiday weekend will get some traffic relief later this week as the Georgia Department of Transportation plans to suspend its roadwork projects.
There will be no construction-related lane closures from noon Wednesday through 5 a.m. July 8.
The department still urges caution as traffic is expected to be higher than normal and crews may still be working in close proximity to highways.
The DOT reminds travelers to use its Georgia Navigator Web site, which provides road conditions and real-time traffic information statewide.
Access it by calling 511 from a cell phone, online at www.511ga.org or (877) 694-2511 out-of-state.
