The North Carolina Department of Transportation is suspending most construction activity along major highways to keep lanes open for holiday travel.
The work along interstates, U.S. routes and key N.C. routes is expected to shut down from the morning of Nov. 23 through the evening of Nov. 29.
Work that does not impact travel lanes will continue for some projects. On a few projects, such as the bridge replacement on I-40 near the Tennessee state line, lane restrictions are required for driver safety.
Before you hit the road, be sure to visit DriveNC.gov for the most up-to-date traffic information.
The Governor’s Highway Safety Program is also launching its annual Thanksgiving Click It or Ticket campaign. Law enforcement is stepping up patrols and check points to catch people speeding, driving while impaired and not wearing their seat belts.
