Georgia tries to ease traffic congestion for spring break

Heading south for Spring Break? Two state agencies are trying to make your trip a little easier. 

The Georgia Department of Transportation will suspend construction-related lane closures on interstate highways for the next two weekends. The suspension will last from noon Friday to 10 p.m. Sunday and from noon April 5 to 10 p.m. April 7. 

Meanwhile, the State Road and Tollway Authority is adjusting the schedule for the I-75 South Metro Express Lanes

The reversible lanes will switch to southbound around 11 a.m. Friday and remain southbound until 10:30 p.m. Sunday, when they will change to northbound. 

That’s no guarantee you won’t run into traffic. But every little bit helps, right?
