Tennessee Department of Transportation - TDOTNashville, TN – Road construction won’t slow motorists across Tennessee over the July 4th holiday. 

The Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) will suspend all construction-related lane closures on interstates and state routes beginning at 6:00am on Friday, July 3rd through 6:00am on Monday, July 6th to provide maximum roadway capacity for holiday travelers.

“The coronavirus has impacted travel plans for Tennesseans this July 4th holiday,” TDOT Commissioner Clay Bright said. “Although fewer motorists will be traveling through Tennessee, we are suspending lane closures during this holiday travel time to help motorists reach their destinations safely and without unnecessary delays.”

Motorists will still encounter some long term lane closures on construction projects.  While lane closure activity will be stopped, workers may be on site in construction zones and reduced speed limits in work zones will still be in effect.  Drivers convicted of speeding through work zones where workers are present face a fine of $250.00 to $500.00, plus court fees and possible increased insurance premiums.

This summer, AAA forecasts Americans will take 700 million trips based on economic indicators and state re-openings. That number is down nearly 15% compared to last July through September and is the first decline in summer travel since 2009.
