Print | Front Page | Email this story

NASHVILLE (AP) — Tennessee plans to suspend construction-related lane closures on interstates and state routes during the Fourth of July holiday weekend to reduce traffic delays, transportation officials said.

Suspension of lane closures in construction areas will start Friday morning and end on the morning of July 6, Tennessee's Department of Transportation said in a news release Monday.

"It is estimated that 939,000 motorists will travel Tennessee's interstates and state routes this July 4 holiday," Tennessee Transportation Commissioner Clay Bright said. "To help motorists reach their destinations safely and without unnecessary delays, we are suspending lane closures during this holiday travel time."

Drivers will still face some long-term lane closures on construction projects, the department said. Workers may be on the site of construction zones, and reduced speed limits in work zones will still be in effect, the department said.
