Georgia I-85 lane closures to be suspended
For the benefit of Thanksgiving motorists, Georgia DOT will suspend I-85 lane closures starting at 5 o’clock tomorrow morning through 10 o’clock Sunday night. This is considered especially good for drivers headed south on 85 where G-DOT crews are widening a 15-mile section. Similar restrictions are to facilitate holiday traffic over Christmas and New Year’s. Nevertheless, crews may still work near highways, and, for safety reasons, certain long-term lane closures may be maintained. Moderate traffic is anticipated today and the heaviest and congestion starts at the noon hour tomorrow.
