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."
