ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) _ The New York State Thruway Authority will halt construction on its roads around the state to make it easier for travelers this Memorial Day weekend.

Starting Thursday, projects from Yonkers to Canajoharie and from Rochester to the Pennsylvania state line will cease. They'll restart on Tuesday, May 28.

Starting Friday, projects from Little Falls to Canandaigua will go quiet. Those road projects will start up again Monday night, May 27.

The authority also reminds motorists that a seatbelt enforcement action is ongoing and will be in full swing over the weekend.
