Work crews will continue clearing roads today. Currently, all interstates are passable with at least one lane open to traffic. GDOT crews continue working in the interior lanes of the interstate and conditions are hazardous in those lanes. Please utilize the outside lane as you travel today as GDOT crews work to clear the inside lanes.
Abandoned vehicles are hampering clean-up efforts. Ice removal cannot occur while vehicles are scattered all over the roadway. Often vehicles are in the travel lanes of the interstates. GDOT implores motorists to remove abandoned vehicles as soon as possible from interstates and state routes.
GDOT crews continue battling ice through the day shift. Routes recently cleared or with crews on them at this time include:
· I- 285 at Cascade Road
· I 20 at Sigmund Road
· SR 400 from SR 20 to the Downtown Connector
· SR 10 Loop at Chase Street in Athens
Extreme caution is urged for those driving on the roadways. Please slow down and utilize the outside lanes of interstates and state routes.
