TDOT Stops Highway Construction for Holidays

Dec 19, 2012

Tennessee’s Department of Transportation is stopping all lane closures on interstates and state highways in expectation of heavy holiday traffic. Almost all construction activity will halt Dec. 22 and resume Jan. 2. Only a few long-term closures will remain between Christmas and New Year’s Day for safety purposes.

TDOT Commissioner John Schroer says the state expects 2 million travelers this holiday season.
