If you can see outside, you know the weather is treacherous.  Here’s the official word from the DOT.

Perilous roadway conditions now exist in Forsyth, Gwinnett and Hall Counties.

  • SR 369 from SR 9 to SR 400 is closed due to a tree and power lines across the road, no estimated clearance time.
  • Reports of icing on I-985 northbound and southbound from I-85 in Gwinnett past exit 24/SR 369 in Gainesville.
  • Reports of icing in Interstate 85 northbound and southbound exit 137/SR 11/US 129 in Jackson County through Banks County to Exit 154/SR 63/Martin Bridge in Franklin County.

Georgia DOT District Engineer Bayne Smith says, “Avoid these routes while our crews work diligently to break through the ice and can improve conditions on these roadways. Please do not multiply the hazards by driving unless it is an emergency situation.”

Stay where you are, please.
