NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee officials are halting most interstate road construction work for Easter weekend.

The state Department of Transportation says it will pause road construction that requires lane closures from Thursday evening through Monday morning.

The department says the stoppage will help cater to motorists during the busy travel time.
