But MoDOT plans to take construction delays out of the equation.

Marianne Asher-Chapman looks forward to her fourth of July vacation every year. What she doesn' t look forward to are constant delays from road construction.

"We always do but you know you can't help it," said Marianne Asher-Chapman. "You just have to be careful."

But MoDOT has a plan; contractors must stop working at noon the day before the holiday and start working at 9 a.m. the day after.

"We stay very sensitive to holidays like the fourth of July holidays where we realize where the traffic volumes, tourists, traveling and vacationing is going to be up," Patty Lemongelli of MoDOT said.

Even though MoDOT predicts few delays over the holiday weekend, they're still providing travelers with construction maps. They provide highway route numbers and construction times so you can avoid the construction.

Most of the construction includes bridge work and road resurfacing but MoDOT believes there will be little disruption to the steady flow of traffic. Travelers are still advised to figure in delays into their estimated travel times.

"Travelers of course need to pay attention to the signs and if there is any off roadwork going on and you know drive cautiously as they should always but I don't think construction wise MoDOT work, you should see any disruptions," Lemongelli said.

Marianne won't let any road delays get her down.

"We're just gonna roll with it, that's what we do," she said.
