Tifton -- With perhaps the busiest holiday traffic period on record just hours away, local travelers hitting the road this Thanksgiving holiday can rest assured road construction along I-75 will not be causing any hold ups.

The Georgia DOT announced there will be no lane closures on interstates or major state routes from 5 a.m. Wednesday through 12 a.m. Sunday, November 25.

However, travelers need to be aware that speed limits are still reduced in work zones.

"This doesn't mean that there won't be contractors working behind the barrier walls on I-75. That does not impede the traveling public. An example would be I-75 in Cook County. They're probably not going to work over there, but they can be behind the barrier walls," said Craig Solomon, Georgia DOT.

The DOT urges travelers to leave earlier than normal due to heavy traffic.

They also ask drivers to call 511, the state's new traffic information line, to get real-time travel information statewide.
