It's the last major holiday of the summer season and that means roadways will be busy.
Don Greuel with the Wisconsin DOT's Bureau of Project Development, says while most road construction workers will also get some time off, reduced speed limits in work zones apply at all times whether workers are present or not.
"If you’re going to travel over the Labor Day weekend, our advice is to plan ahead, avoid peak travel periods if possible, be patient, and make sure everyone in your vehicle is buckled up. As we do for all major holidays, construction work will come to a temporary halt, but drivers will still encounter work zones — and that means being aware of your speed and following distance."
State and local police will be patrolling in greater numbers and for longer hours as part of the "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" campaign to enforce traffic laws and assist stranded motorists.
