North Carolina: DOT Helping Travelers Save Time, Money Over Labor Day Weekend

North Carolina: DOT Helping Travelers Save Time, Money Over Labor Day Weekend

As families travel to enjoy the final holiday weekend of summer, the N.C. Department of Transportation will suspend most road construction activities on major routes across the state to help make their trips a little smoother. By avoiding traffic delays, motorists can reach their destinations safely and efficiently, while cutting down on fuel consumption and costs.

NCDOT will put on hold most construction projects along interstate, N.C. and U.S. routes from 4 p.m., Friday, September 4, until 9 a.m., Tuesday, September 8.

Here are some additional tips for navigating the highways safely during the holiday travel season:

Leave early to get a head start on your drive. Travel at non-peak hours when possible.

– Stay alert. Even if work is suspended, you may encounter narrowed lanes and traffic shifts in work zones.
– Be patient and obey the posted speed limit.
– Use alternate routes, when possible, to avoid traffic congestion.
– Stay informed. Real-time travel information is available online and over the phone by dialing 511.
– Don’t drive drowsy. Travel at times when you are normally awake, and take frequent breaks.
– Avoid distracted driving. When drivers stop focusing on the road ahead, they react more slowly to traffic conditions and are more likely to be involved in an accident.
