The Georgia Department of Transportation is hoping to do a better job at keeping the state residents informed during winter weather in the upcoming winter season.

Transportation officials in Georgia have unveiled a newly designed inclement weather section on the department’s web page.  The new page went live last week.

In addition to the new webpage, the department also plans to increase use of social media like Facebook and Twitter to distribute information and update the public in the event of severe weather. The department will continue to transmit information through the traditional means of radio, television and newspapers.
