Road construction won’t slow motorists across the state over the July 4th, Independence Day holiday. The Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) will suspend all construction-related lane closures on interstates and state routes beginning at 6 a.m. on Wednesday through 6a.m. on Monday to provide maximum roadway capacity for holiday travelers. Motorists will still encounter some long-term lane closures on construction projects. Drivers will notice an increased law enforcement presence on Tennessee’s roadways throughout this week and weekend in an effort to ensure that everyone has a safe and happy 4th of July holiday. According to AAA projections, more than 40 million Americans will travel 50 miles or more away from home this holiday weekend.
