MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Most highway repair projects across Wisconsin will be on hold over the long Memorial Day holiday weekend.

According to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, only a few main highways will have lane restrictions. Those include Interstate 94 south of Milwaukee, I-94 east of Madison and Highways 41 near Oshkosh and 172 at Green Bay.

Most work will stopped by noon on Friday and won’t resume until 6 a.m. on Tuesday.

According to the Wisconsin State Patrol, it will be on the lookout for both drivers and passengers not wearing seat belts as part of a nationwide enforcement effort.

Peak travel times are expected to be between noon and 8 p.m. both Friday and Monday.
