RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - The state Transportation Department is suspending most construction on major routes for the Labor Day holiday.

DOT officials say many projects along interstate, North Carolina and U.S. routes will be on hold from 6 a.m. Wednesday until midnight Monday.

Work will continue on various projects in Hertford, Tyrrell, Sampson, Pender, Vance, Warren and Jackson counties.

DOT officials also advise that the department and the Governor’s Highway Safety Program have already launched the annual Labor Day “Booze It or Lose It” campaign, which focuses on enforcement of impaired driving laws through Sept. 5.
