Holiday halts road construction

Published On: Nov 21 2012 05:27:55 AM CST

If you are one of the millions planning to travel this week for Thanksgiving, you won't have to worry about road closures in Tennessee or Virginia.

Departments of Transportation in both Tennessee and Virginia are halting lane closures beginning Wednesday.

In Tennessee all lanes will open at noon and stay open until 6:00 a.m. Monday morning.

In Virginia most closures will be suspended at noon Wednesday.  They will not close again until noon Monday.

You should expect to see more police on the roads as well.
