Road work to be suspended for holiday weekend

With all the road construction going on around the state right now, don’t worry about it causing traffic tie-ups over the Labor Day holiday weekend - ITD has announced that all its highway construction projects will be suspended for the holiday weekend, excepting only those that don’t affect traffic or those responding to emergencies like flooding. “The contractor, like anybody else, has very little interest in working over the holiday,” said ITD Chief Engineer Tom Cole. “Most would probably take these days off, even if they were not required to keep the road open to travelers.” Click below for ITD’s full announcement.
