FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) -- Memorial Day weekend is the beginning of the Summer travel season. Schools are letting out, and families are packing up for a little vacation. With the long weekend, Indiana State Police are planning to be out in full force watching the roads. They want to remind you to drive carefully, don't rush, and pay attention to your surroundings.

Just because it's the holiday, road construction projects and road closures will continue this weekend. Here are a list of projects in Northeast Indiana:
