CHATTANOOGA – Tennessee Department of Transportation Commissioner Gerald Nicely joined Congressman Lincoln Davis, and state and local officials in Marion County today to break ground on a new project to improve the interchange on I-24 at Exit 152 in Marion County. During the project, workers will replace the bridge on I-24 at the Kimball/South Pittsburg exit and will make a number of changes to the interchange to improve traffic flow and safety.
“The new bridge on I-24 will be higher to allow for safer passage of large trucks on U.S. 72, which will improve access to I-24 for many businesses in Marion County,” said Nicely. “The project will also improve the overall function of the interchange, reducing congestion and making it safer for all motorists.”
