CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

According to national studies from AAA, and other reports, Thursday through Sunday travel for the Fourth of July holiday weekend should be the heaviest we’ve seen in years.

For this reason, many transportation departments are suspending or limiting construction projects in areas where you might normally see work, so that your drive is a little easier from Thursday to Sunday.

You can also check out more about what you can expect for your drive by going to the state’s transportation sites.
