NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Parts of Interstate 24 will be closed on Sunday during Nashville's Fourth of July fireworks celebration.

The Tennessee Department of Transportation said the decision was made to close the interstate to avoid dangerous pedestrian usage and stop vehicles from parking on the interstate.

From 9 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Sunday, no vehicles will be allowed to enter I-24 between Interstate 65 and Interstate 40.
