TDOT suspending construction-related lane closures

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Tennessee Department of Transportation will suspend all construction-related lane closures on interstates and state routes from noon Tuesday through 6 a.m. Friday to accommodate heavy traffic on the July 4 holiday.

Some workers may still be on site in construction zones and reduced speed limits in work zones will remain in effect.

TDOT reminded travelers they can dial 511 to get information about travel conditions.

AAA estimates about 754,000 Tennesseans will be on the roadways over the holiday period.
