TDOT tells crews to knock off Wednesday

By

NASHVILLE — Tennessee transportation officials are clearing the road ahead for the Fourth of July holiday weekend.

TDOT has told its crews and contractors to knock off work by 6 p.m. Wednesday and not resume construction until 6 a.m. on July 8.

That means temporary lane closures will end for the long weekend, but there are still construction zones with lane barriers in place and there could be workers in those zones. Lowered speed limits and doubled fines still apply in the zones.

TDOT also reminds drivers they can dial 511 from any phone to get travel conditions. Statewide traffic tweets are also available by following TN511. The SmartWay website can be accessed athttp://m.tdot.tn.gov/SmartWay .
