Road construction won’t slow motorists across Tennessee over the July 4th holiday. The Tennessee Department of Transportation will suspend all construction-related lane closures on interstates and state routes beginning at midnight on Thursday, June 30th through 6:00 a.m. on Tuesday, July 5th to provide maximum roadway capacity for holiday travelers.
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 to $500, plus court fees and possible increased insurance premiums.
AAA projects nearly 43 million Americans will travel this Independence Day weekend, the highest July 4th travel volume on record, and a half million more travelers than last year. Over 36 million of them will drive. AAA estimates more than 831,000 Tennesseans will travel during the holiday, with over 744,000 driving.
