Road construction takes holiday break

With the July 4 holiday falling on a Wednesday, road construction and maintenance crews will be giving travelers a short break, but will still be on the job that week, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation.

With the July 4 holiday falling on a Wednesday, road construction and maintenance crews will be giving travelers a short break, but will still be on the job that week, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation.

Most crews will wrap up their work by around noon on July 3 to allow holiday travelers to get to their destinations with as few lane restrictions and detours as possible. Work on most projects is expected to resume by around 6 a.m. July 5.

Travelers will still see projects in progress with lots of orange barrels along the side of the road, however. Work zones require motorists to slow down and watch out for changing conditions.

To find out if there's a work zone along your intended route, log onto the Department of Transportation's Web site www.dot.wisconsin.gov and click on "Road Conditions." That will link you to a page where you can open up the latest list of road construction projects. You can also call 1-800-ROAD WIS for a list of some of the larger projects along your route.
