The Tennessee Dept. of Transportation is making traveling easier for this Thanksgiving Holiday. TDOT will stop all lane closure activity on interstates and highways as they anticipate higher volumes of traffic through the Thanksgiving Holiday Weekend. All construction-related lane closures will begin at 12 Noon on Wed. Nov. 22 through 6 AM on Mon. Nov. 27. While all lane closure activity will be stopped, workers may be on site in some construction zones. Long-term lane closures will also remain in place on some construction projects for motorists’ safety. Motorists are reminded to drive safely and obey the posted speeds, especially in work zones. Drivers convicted of speeding in work zones where workers are present face a fine of up to $500, plus court fees and possible increased insurance premiums.
