Highway construction stops Friday evening

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Travelers should find fewer orange barrels as they wend over the river and through the woods during the holidays.

TDOT will shut down all road construction projects on Friday and they won't resume before 8:00pm on January 2nd.

The department's chief engineer, Paul Degges, says all lanes that can be opened for holiday travel will be, noting that some long-term projects will still take up lanes.
