Original article from Kent Live
The August bank holiday is almost upon us, which many will take as their final chance to get away and soak up some sun before autumn returns.
With many travelling to see family, friends, or simply to grab a change of scene, a lot of traffic on Kent's roads can be expected – making having your travel plans sorted and ready before you go all the more important.
So, to help out anyone making a long journey, or just a short drive to the seaside this weekend, we at KentLive have pulled together a little list of all planned roadworks for this bank holiday weekend.
These have been taken from Kent County Council's social media announcements and website, and may not be a conclusive list, as no full list of Kent's ongoing roadworks is published by the council.
