The state of North Carolina will temporarily suspend most highway construction projects that cause lane closures to help reduce the anticipated influx of traffic over the July Fourth holiday weekend.
The N.C. Department of Transportation will reopen closed lanes where possible on major routes from Thursday evening, July 2, until the morning of July 7. This means, for instance, drivers in the Triangle, Triad and Charlotte regions will not encounter lane closures on major routes over the holiday.
Heavy traffic is expected next weekend, particularly on interstates and other four-lane, divided highways. Reopening lanes on projects can reduce traffic backups and delays.
There are some locations, however, where the type of construction or the status of the project requires lane closures to remain in place for safety reasons.
