The Georgia Department of Transportation is opening up closed roads for holidays.

The lift began December 20th at 5P.M. and will continue through the second of January until 5 A.M.

Georgia 511 provides statewide traffic conditions, route-specific information and estimated travel times. 511 callers can access transit providers, major airports, rideshare organizations, Georgia tourism information and 511 systems in neighboring states.
