East Farmingdale, NY- As millions of American’s head to the roads this holiday weekend, one thing they won’t have to worry about is roadwork. New York Governor Kathy Hochul on Friday announced the state would be suspending construction related lane closures for the July 4th holiday weekend starting 6am Friday through 6am straight through Tuesday July 5th at 6am.
“With record high car travel expected this July 4th weekend, we want to ensure everyone gets to their destination safely and with minimal delays,” Governor Hochul said. “I encourage everyone traveling this weekend to plan ahead, drive responsibly and remember to move over when you see emergency responders and workers on the side of the road who are still working to ensure the safety of motorists this holiday weekend. I wish all New Yorkers a happy and safe Independence Day.”
