Brunswick Business Journal Staff Report
April 3, 2017 – The Georgia Dept. of Transportation is launching its new ‘CHAMP’ program this week, the new Coordinated Highway Assistance & Maintenance Program, here in GaDOT’s Southeast District which covers 26 counties.
The assistance will be available on I-95, I-16 and Hwy 516.  
CHAMP trucks will patrol the highways to assist drivers.  
CHAMP is Georgia DOT’s roadside assistance and maintenance program covering interstates outside of Metro Atlanta (except I-59 and I-24). The program is an integral part of the DOT’s goal to provide safe and maintained roadways, support emergency responders and assist motorists outside of the HERO covered area in Metro Atlanta.
CHAMP is not a part of Georgia DOT's Highway Emergency Response Operator (HERO) program.  Both however, are crucial to Georgia DOT's statewide highway safety partnership, according to the department.  CHAMP is made possible through funding created by the Transportation Funding Act of 2015.
They patrol 16 hours a day, and are on call the other 8.
