Road Construction will not delay motorists as they travel Tennessee’s highways this Memorial Day weekend.

The Tennessee Department of Transportation will suspend all construction-related lane closures on interstates and state routes beginning at noon Friday, May 26th through 6:00am on Tuesday, May 30th.

This will provide maximum roadway capacity for motorists expected to travel in the state this Memorial Day weekend.

Authorities predict 751,000 Tennesseans will hit the road for Memorial Day weekend.

That’s 40,500 more than last year during the long holiday travel period.
