With thousands of motorists expected to travel Illinois roads and highways over the Labor Day weekend, IDOT announced Monday non emergency roadwork will be suspended where possible to reduce congestion and improve traffic flow. Starting at 3pm Wednesday, August 28th, IDOT will suspend all non emergency roadwork for the holiday weekend and open up all lanes where possible through midnight, Monday, September 2nd. IDOT is urging drivers to slow down, obey posted speed limits and drive with caution through work zones. Holiday travelers are reminded that work zone speed limits are still in effect wherever they are posted, even where no construction workers are present.
