Labor Day, which is the unofficial end of summer, is typically filled with travelers on roadways. AAA Carolinas projects that people will stay closer to home due to COVID-19, but that many people will still travel this holiday weekend..
To help ease travel over the holiday weekend, the North Carolina Department of Transportation is suspending most construction along interstates and U.S. routes starting today and running through Tuesday. Drivers should be aware that they may still encounter closed or narrowed lanes and lane shifts where the type of work doesn’t allow for normal traffic patterns. And remember work zone speed limits are still in effect, even if crews are not working.
