NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee transportation officials are shutting down highway construction for the Easter weekend.
The Tennessee Department of Transportation has told contractors and its own crews to knock off work no later than 6 p.m. Thursday, in anticipation of increased holiday travel.
Transportation Commissioner John Schroer encouraged travelers to download the department's SmartWay Mobile App to get current traffic information as they travel. It's available at the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store for Android devices.
Long-term lane restrictions will remain in place and lower speed limits in construction zones still apply. There will be no temporary lane restrictions, however.
Construction will resume at 6 a.m. April 1.
