DENVER (AP) - The Colorado Department of Transportation has suspended construction projects across the state in anticipation of heavy traffic this Labor Day weekend.

Heavier than normal weekend traffic is expected on Interstate 25 along the Front Range and on Interstate 70 west of Denver. Officials say increased traffic is expected on westbound I-70 on Saturday and in the eastbound lanes Monday, especially between Summit County and the Denver area.

The projects were suspended late Friday afternoon and will resume Tuesday.
