RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Road construction on roads across North Carolina will be put on hold as motorists head to their favorite destinations for the July 4 weekend.

The N.C. Department of Transportation says work will be suspended from 4 p.m. on Thursday, July 2, until 9 a.m. on Monday, July 6.

Work will continue through the period on six projects, including U.S. 264 in Dare County, which will be reduced to one of two lanes controlled by temporary traffic signals in five locations for the replacement of five bridges. Lane closures are between Stumpy Point and the Hyde County line.

Also, two bridges in Brunswick County on N.C. 211 over the Honey Island Swamp will have intermittent lane closures in order for crews to realign the roadway and replace both bridges and approaches.
