AAA predicts a record 49 million people will be traveling for the Fourth of July holiday. And that includes 2.1 million Ohioans. Drivers are likely to face a little frustration because there’s a lot of construction on Ohio’s roadways right now.

Ohio Department of Transportation spokesman Matt Bruning said there are more than 1,000 construction projects throughout the state, including major ones on Interstate 75.

While many Ohioans are enjoying picnics, parades and fireworks, members of a group that wants to put a proposed ballot issue before voters this fall are working to meet the July 4th deadline.

A group that wants the state to spend more money on treatment for drug addiction instead of prison hopes to present more than 700,000 signatures from registered voters to the Secretary of State’s office to put the issue on the statewide ballot this fall – more than double the number they’d need to be valid to make that happen.

The FBI announced Monday the arrest of a Maple Heights man who was allegedly attempting to assist Al Qaeda. Law enforcement officials say 48-year-old Demetrius Nathaniel Pitts, also known as Abdur Raheem Rafeeq, was planning to target downtown Cleveland over the July 4th holiday.

U.S. Attorney Justin Herdman says in addition to calling for violence on Facebook, Pitts planned to target various locations in downtown Cleveland and walked around last week to map them out.
