SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The Georgia Department of Transportation is opening up closed lanes for the holidays. 

Officials say they're expecting more traffic than usual this weekend and want to play it safe. Construction lanes closed on all interstates and major state roads across Georgia will open back up. The lift started last Friday at 5 p.m. and will continue through the second of January until 5 a.m. 

State officials are also urging anyone headed out to check travel information before leaving home.
