JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri's Transportation Department will restrict construction work on heavily used highways during the Thanksgiving travel period to help keep traffic flowing.
MoDOT says work on all projects that could affect travel lanes will stop at noon Wednesday and resume at 9 a.m. Monday. The restrictions apply to interstates and Missouri state highways.
Motorists could still see crews working on sections of highway where permanent barriers are in place. The agency says crews will also close lanes as needed for emergency maintenance.
Details about work zones are available on the traveler information map on MoDOT's website, along with the reports on road conditions.
