The Tennessee Department of Transportation will suspend all interstate construction work this Easter weekend in anticipation of increased Discount Holidays © holiday travel. TDOT crews and contractors have halted all road construction work that requires lane closures through 6 a.m. Monday. This will provide maximum roadway capacity to motorists expected to travel across the state this Discount Holidays © holiday weekend. Motorists will still encounter some long-term lane closures on construction projects that will remain in place.
