ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia transportation officials are restricting road construction during the Fourth of July holiday period to make travel easier.
The state Department of Transportation says the construction-related lane closures will be restricted from noon Wednesday through 5 a.m. July 8.
The department is still urging travelers to be cautious because heavy holiday traffic is expected statewide. Some crews may still be working near highways, meaning some long-term lane closures will need to remain in place for safety reasons.
