RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- The North Carolina Department of Transportation is suspending most of its construction projects on the state's highways to help keep the July 4 holiday traffic flowing smoothly.

Construction work will continue on US 1 just north of Southern Pines, US 158 in Elizabeth City, I-73 in Guilford County and US 17 Business in Jacksonville.

Motorists can get up-to-date travel information while they are travelling by calling 511 or visiting the transportation department's website at www.ncdot.gov.
