Construction work that would require lane closures along major highways will be suspended by the N.C. Department of Transportation through Thursday, Jan. 2 to accommodate travelers for Christmas and New Year’s Day.
There will be some locations where the type of project or construction conditions make it unsafe to open all lanes on interstates, U.S. and major N.C. highways. That includes where a bridge is being replaced, or where lanes are blocked off with concrete barriers so drivers must still be alert for any lane closure signs.
With traditional heavy traffic expected over the nearly two-week period, travelers need to plan ahead. Before starting their trip, drivers can check DriveNC.gov to see if there are any issues with their preferred route. . .
