Roadwork could hinder holiday travel

COLUMBUS, Ohio – More than a million Ohioans are expected to take top the highways and byways this Memorial Day weekend, making for heavy traffic that will only be made worse in spots by road construction.

The Ohio Department of Transportation says construction work may be suspended over the holiday in many work zones but some permanent restrictions may remain in place.

Law enforcement across the state kicked off the 2013 national “Click It or Ticket” safety belt enforcement mobilization effort on May 20 to help save lives by cracking down on those who don’t buckle up.

Memorial Day weekend is traditionally a dangerous holiday period on Ohio roads, particularly for impaired driving crashes.

Last year, seven of the 13 people killed on Ohio roadways were involved in alcohol-related crashes, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

This year’s Click It or Ticket enforcement mobilization runs through June 2.
