Some Construction Suspended Over Holiday Weekend
The Illinois Department of Transportation announced Thursday that non-emergency roadwork will be suspended to improve traffic flow at the unofficial start of summer. Transportation Secretary Ann Schneider says the move helps ensure safety with the increase of motorists expected on the roads. The suspension began Friday afternoon and continues through midnight Monday.
Transportation officials are urging motorists to obey posted speed limits and that posted limits are still in effect for construction zones even if there's no construction in the works.
