Plan Ahead & Be Patient! Download the 511 Georgia app; visit www.511ga.org or call 511 for real-time information about statewide road conditions.  Motorists should expect delays and therefore, plan ahead before hitting the road. 

Obey the Rules in Work Zones! Pay Attention, Slow Down and Watch for Workers.  Work zones are not always stationary, but can include mobile activities such as litter pickup, mowing, sweeping and drainage work. Allow extra distance between vehicles, read signs, obey road crew flaggers, and expect the unexpected. Your safety and our workers’ safety are critical, so please don’t be distracted while driving. It can prove fatal.

Drive Alert and Arrive Alive: Be Safe! Always, always wear your seatbelt. Buckle up before you go. Do not drive distracted and do not drive impaired. 

Please, Pardon our Progress—while your dollars are working to build a better Georgia! Be safe out there!
