INDOT Stops Construction for Labor Day Travel


The Indiana Department of Transportation will be putting a moratorium on road construction over the Labor Day weekend.

The Indiana Department of Transportation says that with major federal holidays such as July 4th and Memorial Day, they cease construction work to better manage traffic flow around the state.

Certain major projects will keep traffic restrictions and orange barrels in place for safety reasons. A vast majority of the restrictions will be removed to allow for easier travel between Friday and Monday.

Road restrictions should be back in place on Tuesday morning.

Though road projects will not be taking place, INDOT crews will be available to handle emergency situations.

Construction zone speed limits will remain due to changed traffic patterns for both worker and motorist safety.
