State: No interstate closures during Labor Day weekend

Published 3:17 pm Thursday, August 28, 2014

Highway travel during the 2014 Labor Day holiday weekend is expected to be heavy in Alabama during the three-day holiday weekend and as the college football season begins. The Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) urges motorists to drive safely in their travels.

As an added precaution during the heavily traveled holiday, ALDOT also announced there would be no temporary lane closures on Alabama interstates from noon Friday, Aug. 29, until midnight Monday, Sept. 1.

Limiting roadwork during this busy holiday period is a safety measure for the traveling public, construction industry workers and maintenance crews. Throughout the year, ALDOT limits road construction during major holiday weekends. Emergency lane closures may be possible, dependent on specific circumstances on interstates and other state roadways.
