SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) -- Construction work on Illinois highways will be suspended for the Labor Day weekend to improve the flow of traffic and increase safety.
That's the word from the Illinois Department of Transportation, which announced its plans Tuesday. IDOT officials hope that by opening up as many traffic lanes as possible they will reduce congestion and make the holiday weekend more enjoyable for travelers.
Work will be put on hold starting at 3 p.m. Friday and will continue through midnight Monday.
The Department of Transportation reminds motorists that work zone speed limits remain in effect when they are posted, even if no workers are on site.
