Several construction projects in Eastern Carolina will be suspended by the Department of Transportation for the holiday weekend.
Most construction projects along interstates, NC and U.S. routes will be halted beginning at 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday until 9:00 a.m. Monday.
Exceptions in the east are Highway 17 business in Jacksonville on the Buddy Phillips bridge. It will be reduced to two lanes. And Highway 17 in Windsor will be reduced to one lane on the Cashie River bridge.
Motorists are encouraged to use the Highway 17 bypass to avoid delays.
