Process to Update a ROADS Document
GDOT is in the process of implementing an updated ROADS notification that will allow us to target audiences based on the changes made on the ROADS page. Under the new system, you will be able to sign-up for the specific notifications you want to receive. Therefore, instead of receiving all notifications about all changes on ROADS, you will only get notified when a change is made that applies to you.
In order to implement the new system, all current subscribers are required to
re-subscribe using the "Subscribe" button below and complete the registration steps, which include the areas of interest. Simply fill out your name and email address and check the areas you want to be notified about. You must re-subscribe by
