GDOT: Efforts resulted in mostly dry and passable roads

ATLANTA — The Georgia Department of Transportation’s efforts to proactively treat interstates and state routes ahead of expected precipitation and frigid temperatures resulted in mostly dry and passable road conditions today, officials said.

Crews are currently patrolling routes and treating any icy patches as they are found.

As of this morning, the I-85 Express Lanes and the I-75 South Metro Express Lanes are open to traffic. The I-75 Northwest Corridor Express Lanes are expected to reopen to southbound traffic in the next few hours. Be sure to know before you go and check 511GA for real-time traffic information.

There are some reports of fallen trees and downed powerlines.

If motorists come across downed trees, please report them to 511 as soon as possible so crews can remove them. If motorists come across downed powerlines, report them to local authorities or 911 and find an alternate route.
