INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) wants to remind motorists to slow down and travel safely, especially through work zones, this holiday weekend.
Fewer drivers are expected to hit the road this Memorial Day weekend due to the coronavirus pandemic.
INDOT said AAA predicts record low travel volumes across the U.S. while social distancing guidelines still in place.
Last year saw the second-highest volume on record with 43 million travelers, according to INDOT.
In Indiana, residents are starting to get “Back on Track” as various businesses and services are reopening. Because of this, Hoosiers may experience increased traffic in some areas.
Where possible, road construction and maintenance activities will be suspended by noon on Friday, May 22.
