Good news if you plan to travel this holiday weekend. Less construction and fewer motorists.
Construction crews will take a break over the Labor Day holiday, as motorists hit the roads for the last official weekend of summer.
Mike Goetzman with the Wisconsin DOT says although many contraction projects will be put on hold to accommodate holiday travelers, drivers will still see the familiar signs of road improvement projects at several locations across the state.
Goetzman says travelers should be prepared for slower traffic where lanes are restricted or pavement is rough.
Also, motorists should think twice before getting behind the wheel after a drink. More than 300 law enforcement agencies will continue their “Drunk Driving. Over the Limit. Under Arrest.” crackdown.
Meanwhile, Triple-A Wisconsin projects a slight decrease in the number of Americans traveling during the Labor Day holiday weekend. That said, peak holiday travel times are expected to be between noon and 8 p.m. Friday, and again on Monday, September 1.
