ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) - To help accommodate higher traffic during the Memorial Day holiday weekend, the Georgia Department of Transportation will suspend most construction-related lane closures on Georgia interstates and state routes beginning Friday, May 27 at 12 p.m. until 5 a.m. Tuesday, May 31.

The department reminds travelers to exercise caution as crews may still work near highways, and safety concerns may require some long-term lane closures to remain in place.

Memorial Day weekend traffic is considered to be one of the state’s heaviest travel times. Holiday traffic is expected to be highest on May 27, with moderate traffic on May 28 and May 31, and light traffic on May 29 and May 30.
