If Tennesseans want to escape their homes this weekend, road construction will not stop them.
T-DOT has instituted its usual holiday traffic suspension of road construction statewide. Beginning at Noon Friday, no interstate or state highway road closures related to construction will take place through Tuesday at 6am.
“Suspending construction-related lane closures during the Memorial Day weekend will lessen congestion and delays on Tennessee’s major highways,” Commissioner Clay Bright said. “We want to do our part to help everyone have an enjoyable and safe holiday weekend and keep traffic flowing as smoothly and efficiently as possible.”
Some long-term construction projects will still be underway.
