NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The state Transportation Department is halting all lane closures on interstates and state highways over the holidays.

Except for a few long-term closures which must remain in place for safety reasons, all construction related closures will be suspended beginning at noon on Tuesday and ending at 9:00 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 5.
