RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The Virginia Department of Transportation says it is making room for the higher number of travelers expected over the Fourth of July holiday.
The state agency is lifting lane closures on interstates and major roads from noon on Tuesday until noon on Thursday to help motorists reach their destinations.
Some permanent work zones could still lead to travel delays in some areas.
Travelers can check road conditions and traffic incidents on VDOT's travel information website, www.511Virginia.org
, or the mobile version for handheld devices, mobile511virginia.org
. The service also can be accessed by telephone by calling 511.
