Labor Day

 

Watch for Labor Day Highway Work Zones 

MnDOT is urging drivers to use extra caution in work zones as they go to and from their Labor Day holiday destinations. Spokesman Kevin Gutknecht says even though construction crews are taking a break this weekend, there will still be lane restrictions on some major routes. Gutknecht says a little extra patience goes a long way during Labor Day holiday travel. For more info on road construction zones, log onto; www.511mn.org.

Labor Day Gas Prices Easier on the Budget 

The roads and airports are expected to be more crowded on this Labor Day weekend, with more Minnesotans planning a holiday trip than in the past several years. Mark Jenkins with Triple-A says a lot of people will choose to drive this year because of cheaper gas prices. Motorists in the Wright County area and throughout the Twin Cities metro counties are paying an average of $3.36 per gallon of regular unleaded this Labor Day holiday. That's down a penny or two-per gallon from a week ago, and nearly 30 cents per gallon cheaper than Labor Day 2013. Jenkins says while it's not likely there will be any big spike in prices, it's still not a bad idea to take advantage of these prices while they last. Jenkins says at least 85-percent of Labor Day travel will be by car this year. He says airfares are a little more expensive this year, and so are midrange hotels.
