Georgia's Move-Over Law requires drivers when encountering an emergency vehicle flashing emergency lights to change lanes or slow down. This applies to GDOT work zones, law enforcement, first responders, tow operators & HERO & CHAMP operators. #MoveOver #DriveAlert
There has been increased travel on the roadways and our 511 Georgia operators are practicing social distancing and working from their own homes. Be sure to dial 511 if you need to speak to one of them to help plan out your commute.
Georgians could use a little levity. Have you come across any of the messages on the Interstate changeable message signs? We hope they make you smile and remind you of the importance of safety on the roads and everywhere.
Do you remember the fiery crash that took place on I-85 near Jimmy Carter Blvd in February 2020? A tanker flipped over multiple times and fuel spilled everywhere. Our crews were able to reopen the interstate ahead of schedule. Read more about the incident in the Spring 2020 edition of Milepost magazine. Click the link in our bio.
Update- Starting Monday, June 22nd instead of today, June 15th, we’ll be conducting controlled rock blasting for 8 weeks during construction for a collector-distributor lane on the #Transform285400 project. The blasting will take place along I-285 eastbound from Roswell Road to Glenridge Drive during the day from 1:30 p.m. to 2 p.m. If this is in your commute, be sure to be mindful and use caution and expect delays if you're in the area at this time.
Let's all work together to keep ourselves safe as well as those around us. If you feel sick, stay home. When you're out and about, be sure to keep your distance. We will get through this, stay encouraged.
