Busy Memorial Day Travel Period Expected
The Memorial Day travel period begins Friday afternoon and Sargent Jake Angle says they are expecting this to be a busy travel holiday. Angle says if you have plans to travel you will have plenty of company.
Angle says it is worth your time to plan your travel route.
While most workzones will be shut down through the period, there may be some active workzones or areas where lanes are closed. Check the MoDOT Traveler Information map for the latest on the projects on your route.
Angle says the Missouri Highway Patrol will be out in force, doing click-it and Ticket operations and hazardous moving operations and strict enforcement. He urges everyone to put their phone down and fasten their seatbelts.
