        Plan & Preparedness Efforts

        First priority is to keep the Interstate System open and passable for emergency responders and essential travel. Georgia DOT maintenance forces will treat all affected lanes on the interstates. However, depending on the severity of the storm, some lanes may be closed.

        Second priority is the highest volume state routes; focusing on the most traveled routes first, keeping them open for emergency travel. Two-lane state routes may be closed to traffic until they are safe; or cities and counties may choose to work on those roadways.
