Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - If you plan on hitting the road the next few days, you will have company, and they will be in uniform.

With construction projects still underway, authorities say they'll have extra eyes on the roads with the thousands traveling for the holiday.

Sgt. Jesse Grabow\MN Highway Patrol: “Extra troopers will be out throughout all of Minnesota, looking for any type of violations. We want people to hear this message and be smart about it. If you are going to go out and celebrate this weekend, fine. Make sure you have that sober ride set up. And of course always pay attention and slow down and buckle up.
