The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) said on Wednesday that most ongoing construction projects across the state will be suspended for the Labor Day weekend.

Great news for travelers this holiday weekend.

While construction zones may be closed for the weekend, motorists are advised that equipment and temporary traffic configurations, like minor shifts, may remain in place, requiring motorists to adjust their speed and pay attention.

A spokesperson for MDOT says they will be removing restrictions on 114 of 155 active projects to open as many lanes state wide as they can. This is scheduled for 3 p.m. September 4 through 6 a.m. September 8.

The Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT) will soon begin a bridge improvement project on U.S. Highway 11.

The Michigan Department of Transportation says drivers must still obey traffic laws where road work is underway.

Cranson says construction will resume at six a-m on Tuesday.
