BROOKLYN - Some travel advisories have been announced for the record-breaking amount of drivers expected to hit the road for Independence Day.
Due to the high number of cars expected on the road, Gov. Andrew Cuomo is limiting road work. Most projects that require the closure of a line will be suspended until Tuesday.
Projects that don't interfere with traffic will continue throughout the weekend.
The NYPD also announced plans to heighten DWI enforcement throughout the five boroughs this weekend.
In response to the attack in Turkey, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson announced there will be heightened security for travelers this weekend. The Port Authority says it is adding heavily armed, high visibility patrols at JFK, LaGuardia and Newark Airports. The TSA is also increasing its presence.
For those traveling to Long Island, the LIRR will be running extra trains out to the East End for anyone traveling to the Hamptons or Montauk.
