Despite holiday, some road construction to continue

(KFVS) - While most road work in suspended, there will still be some lane closures.

To plan your route if you're traveling through the Heartland this weekend, check out the websites below. In Missouri alone, Missouri Department of Transportation engineers say you can roads down to one lane on Interstate 55, 70, 44 and others. 

"These are either pavement repair or bridge repair type work where the lane closures had to be set up," explained Matt Seiler. "Those will also carry on through the Summer in some spots."  

Triple A estimates 37 million Americans will travel this weekend.
