The Georgia Department of Transportation has announced plans to suspend construction-related lane closures from noon on Friday, May 22nd until 5 am on Tuesday, May 26th on Interstate highways and limit lane closures on state routes that directly serve major tourist and recreation centers. This is to ease potential Memorial Day weekend traffic congestion. One exception is at 400 south bound to 285 east bound in Atlanta. Georgia’s welcome centers are not currently open to the public due to the COVID-19 pandemic, although all the restrooms at welcome centers and rest areas statewide are open and routinely deep-cleaned throughout the day.
