Extra Troopers, Less Road in Ala. During Weekend

May 24, 2013

Motorists traveling through Alabama during the long Memorial Day weekend will see extra state troopers on the road.

   Alabama officials announced the extra troopers are the result of the state participating in the nationwide Click It Or Ticket campaign to increase the use of safety belts. Many of the state's city and county law enforcement agencies are also participating.

   The state Department of Transportation is anticipating heavy traffic and says it won't have any temporary lane closures on interstate highways from noon Friday through midnight Monday. The department also said road construction and maintenance work will be limited during the busy holiday weekend.
