The Tennessee Department of Transportation has suspended all construction-related lane closures on state routes and interstates for the Independence Day holiday.

According to a TDOT news release, those construction projects will be suspended state-wide from 6 a.m. on Friday, July 2, through 6 a.m. on Tuesday, July 6.

“It is estimated that 939,000 motorists will travel Tennessee’s interstates and state routes this July 4 holiday,” TDOT Commissioner Clay Bright said in the news release. “To help motorists reach their destinations safely and without unnecessary delays, we are suspending lane closures during this holiday travel time.”
