NASHVILLE-Thanksgiving travelers will enjoy a smooth drive through Tennessee again this year during this busy travel holiday. The Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) will halt all lane closure activity on interstates and state highways in anticipation of higher traffic volumes across the state.  

All construction related lane closures will be stopped beginning at noon on Wednesday, Nov. 21 until 6 a.m. Monday, Nov. 26. 

"Nearly a million travelers in Tennessee are expected to drive to their holiday destination this year," said TDOT Commissioner John Schroer. "Halting road work during this busy time will provide maximum capacity on our roadways and help alleviate congestion, especially during the predicted peak travel days of Wednesday and Sunday."
