4th of July Weekend Travel - 07/03/14
It looks like it is shaping up to be a beautiful weekend weather wise to enjoy the 4th of July!
TDOT wants to help keep travelers moving on the interstates and state routes, so they have suspended all construction-related lane closures through Monday, July 7th at 6 AM.
If you're planning to head downtown tomorrow evening for the big celebration in Music City, be prepared for a lot of traffic congestion... have patient and leave early! Here is a link to all the road closures provided by Visit Music City. This should help you choose your route.
Once you get downtown, you have numerous parking options, and there is a taxi stand set up at 7th and Broadway. Please make sure you have a sober ride! Metro Police will have an increased presence to keep everyone attending the celebration safe. Also, please remember, it is very dangerous to park your car on the interstate shoulder to watch the fireworks, and officers will be ticketing!
Aside from the party downtown, there are numerous firework displays all over the Mid State. Check out the listing on our Fox17 Web page for all the fun and festivities.
