Georgia DOT urging motorists to use caution, delay travel Tuesday morning if possible

ATLANTA — The Georgia Department of Transportation’s (GDOT) crews are mobilized and have been actively monitoring and patrolling routes in the northwest, northeast and metro Atlanta portions of Georgia since mid-day Monday.

Crews will continue to treat or clear any accumulation that has occurred due to the potential winter weather event happening in the overnight hours in the affected areas.

The traveling public’s safety is of the utmost importance. Motorists are urged to use caution and be mindful of conditions in the early morning hours. If possible, delay travel in the morning hours in the affected areas to ensure GDOT crews can clear and treat the roads as needed. Be sure to know before you go and check 511GA for real-time traffic information.

Motorists are reminded that black ice can form if the conditions are right, making travel more dangerous. If the road looks wet, assume it is icy and proceed with extreme caution. When safe to do so, report these locations to 511GA.
