RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Temporary highway lane closures will be suspended across Virginia to help Independence Day travelers reach their holiday destinations.

The Virginia Department of Transportation says lane closures in temporary work zones will be lifted from noon Thursday until noon Monday.

Travelers can check road conditions and traffic incidents on VDOT's travel information website, ww.511Virginia.org, or the mobile version for handheld devices, mobile511virginia.org. The service also can be accessed by telephone calling 511.

Officials are encouraging Virginians to plan for a safe trip by avoiding distractions, wearing your seat belt, obeying the speed limit and being courteous to other travelers.
