SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The Georgia Department of Transportation will provide major road projects and new initiatives on its new Facebook page.

The Georgia DOT launched its official page last week, which offers drivers updates on major construction projects, announcements of public hearings and major events, and news release headlines with links to the DOT's website.

Facebook, which has more than 3.4 million users in metro Atlanta, is a free social media Website that allows users – individuals, organization or businesses – to offer information in a public manner to people who choose to connect with them. Users must have a Facebook account to access information.

In addition to its Facebook page, Georgia DOT maintains its own website with information on all of the department's divisions and offices, the state Transportation Board and other programs and projects. For more information on the Georgia DOT, go to
