Beginning at 3 p.m. Friday, July 2, and continuing until 6 a.m. Tuesday, July 6, 116 out of 176 projects statewide will be free of lane restrictions.
Officials are reminding motorist that officers will be enforcing the new texting-while-driving ban that went into effect Thursday.
"The safety of motorists and pedestrians relies on drivers focusing on the road instead of on their cell phones," said State Transportation Director Kirk T. Steudle. "This is especially true in construction work zones."
