NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Tennessee Department of Transportation will suspend all interstate construction work this Easter weekend in anticipation of increased holiday travel.
TDOT crews and contractors will stop all road construction work that requires lane closures beginning Thursday, March 28 at 6:00 p.m. through Monday, April 1 at 6:00 a.m. This will provide maximum roadway capacity to motorists expected to travel across the state this holiday weekend.
“Suspending interstate construction in Tennessee during the Easter holiday will permit a free flow of traffic and reduce potential delays,” said TDOT Commissioner John Schroer. “I also encourage motorists to download the SmartWay Mobile App to get up-to-the minute traffic information before they hit the road this weekend.”
