Please, Pardon Our Progress
During the summer construction season, we want to make sure commuters, vacationers and truckers are informed about scheduled roadwork that may impact travel on our roadways. There will be construction projects on major highways throughout the state, leading to significant delays – especially during weeknights and weekends. To minimize traffic delays, the Department seeks to make the road work as non-disruptive to motorists as possible.
Off-Peak Roadwork Hours
Lane closures are limited to times of lighter traffic volume: overnights Monday through Thursday (9 pm to 5 am) and weekends (from 9 pm Friday through 5 am Monday). Weather permitting.
Limited Work Zones in Metro Atlanta
In Metro Atlanta, GDOT will endeavor to limit lane closures to a maximum of two consecutive miles, with no uninterrupted lane closures for two adjoining projects.
NOTE: Scheduled construction activities can change at any time due to emergencies; maintenance requiring immediate attention; or inclement weather. In these cases, emergency lane closures may be necessary outside the designated times.
