Heartland road projects for 8/22

Posted: Updated:
CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

Here is a list of road projects around the Heartland scheduled for Saturday, August 23.

Labor Day

The Missouri Highway Department of Transportation reminds behavior is the key to safe driving in work zones and on busy highways this Labor Day. They offer the following tips:

Wear your seatbelt. During the Labor Day holiday in 2013, there were eight fatalities in crashes on Missouri roadways and two of those killed were not wearing a seatbelt.

· Don't text and drive. Distracted driving is a top cause of crashes. Put down your phone and focus on your driving.

· Don't tailgate. Keep a safe distance. Remember to leave at least two seconds of braking distance between you and the vehicle in front of you.

· Slow down for work zones. Lanes may be reduced or shifted. By slowing down you will be more prepared to adjust to the changing conditions and potential delays from reduced lanes.
