State says most major road projects done for year
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The state Department of Transportation says most major road construction projects have completed for the year and won't be a problem for Thanksgiving travelers.
However, DOT official Don Greuel says there are still a few locations where lane restrictions are in place.
The heaviest travel days are expected to be Friday as deer hunters head to the woods for the start of deer-hunting season, the Wednesday before Thanksgiving and the Sunday after the holiday.
Last year five people died in traffic crashes in Wisconsin during the Thanksgiving holiday period.
