Wisconsin DOT suspending work on many highway projects to accommodate July Fourth traffic

The Wisconsin DOT is asking motorists traveling over the July Fourth holiday to be patient, alert, and safe.

According to a release from WisDOT, work will be suspended on many highway projects to accommodate expected higher traffic volumes. 

Most highway construction projects will be suspended at noon on Tuesday, July 3rd and will resume on Thursday, July 5th.

“While most construction work will come to a temporary halt, there will still be work zones and higher traffic volumes requiring drivers to watch their speed and stay focused on the road ahead,” said WisDOT Secretary Dave Ross. “The State Patrol and other law enforcement partners will be out enforcing traffic laws and assisting stranded motorists. Travelers need to do their part by buckling up and be prepared for the possibility of traffic slowdowns in work zones and along major travel corridors.”
