Department Urges Safety in Work Zones Despite Suspension of Work
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 which requires lane closures beginning Thursday, April 1 at 6:00 p.m. through 6:00 a.m. Monday, April 5. This will provide maximum roadway capacity to motorists expected to travel across the state this holiday weekend.
“Many families get together during the Easter holiday, and we want to minimize travel interruptions for motorists in Tennessee,” said TDOT Commissioner Gerald Nicely. “Suspending lane closures will provide maximum roadway capacity to the many people traveling in Tennessee this holiday weekend.”
