Tennessee to halt most lane closures for holiday travel

Print | Front Page | Email this story

NASHVILLE (AP) — Tennessee officials are halting nearly all construction-related lane closures on interstates and state highways for Christmas and New Year's holiday travelers.

The Tennessee Department of Transportation says the closures will be paused from midnight Thursday until the morning of Jan. 3.

The department says workers may still be on-site in some construction zones, and long-term lane closures will remain on some construction projects.

Drivers convicted of speeding in work zones with workers present face up to a $500 fine, plus court fees and possible increases to insurance premiums.

The department says AAA is projecting more than 2.6 million travelers in Tennessee for Christmas and New Year's this year.
