“This summer’s construction and maintenance activities will ultimately save taxpayers millions of dollars. Performing maintenance now prevents major repairs later. It also results in less wear and tear on vehicles,” said Georgia DOT Commissioner Russell R. McMurry, P.E. “We ask you to plan ahead and know before you go. By knowing what work we are doing and where we are doing it, you can minimize your travel time and your frustration.”
