NC road construction suspended for July 4 travel

RALEIGH (AP) — The N.C. Department of Transportation is hoping to make travel across the state during the July 4 holiday as easy as possible.
Most construction projects along state, interstate and U.S. routes will be suspended from 4 p.m., Tuesday, July 3, until 9 a.m., Thursday, July 5.
There are three exceptions to the suspensions. U.S. 17 Business in Jacksonville is reduced to two-lane, two-way traffic on the Buddy Phillips Bridge over the New River for new bridge construction. U.S. 158 is down to two-lane, two-way traffic over the Pasquotank River in Elizabeth City for bridge replacement;
Also, N.C. 32 South between Edenton and N.C. 94 is closed for bridge replacement over Queen Anne Creek. Motorists are encouraged to use the U.S. 17 and N.C. 37 detour route to avoid possible delays.
