NCDOT Suspends Most Construction During Thanksgiving Holiday

RALEIGH - NCDOT has suspended most construction activity along major highways to keep lanes open for holiday travel.

Most work along interstates, U.S. and key state routes is suspended through the evening of Nov. 27. One notable exception is lane closures that will remain in place on Interstate 40 near the Tennessee state line.

Before you hit the road, be sure to visit​ for the most up-to-date traffic information.

Don’t forget these helpful safety tips for holiday season travel:

  • ​If possible, leave early for your destination. 
  • Travel at non-peak hours and use alternative routes if possible. 
  • Allow extra time for your trip, regardless of the route you choose.
  • Don't drive drowsy. Take frequent breaks if needed and take advantage of our state's rest areas. 
  • Avoid driving distracted and pay attention to your surroundings and other vehicles nearby.
