MoDOT Urges Caution in Memorial Day Weekend Travel

As Memorial Day approaches and Missourians hit the road starting this Memorial Day weekend, the Missouri Department of Transportation wants drivers to be cautious and patient and use good judgment when traveling.

Impaired driving, distracted driving, excessive speeds, and not wearing seat belts are just a few of the concerns accompanying increased Memorial Day weekend traffic.

Last year in Missouri, the Missouri State Highway Patrol reported 13 people killed and 67 seriously injured in crashes over Memorial Day weekend.

Drivers can stay informed of work zone locations and traffic delays on MoDOT’s Traveler Information Map at, also available as a free mobile app for Apple and Android devices.

Some major work zones with permanent lane closures will remain in place for the holiday weekend.

MoDOT wants drivers to buckle up, put down the phone, slow down, and never drive impaired, especially when encountering work zones.
