Project Includes Concrete and Bridge Deck Repairs; Major Traffic Impact Expected
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. - The Tennessee Department of Transportation will soon begin a resurfacing project on I-24 between mile markers 177 - 183 in and around downtown Chattanooga, Hamilton County. In addition to paving, the project includes partial and full depth concrete repairs to portions of the roadway and some bridge deck repairs. The project area is approximately 5.2 miles in length and begins at the Missionary Ridge Cut near South Crest Road and extends to west of Chattanooga Creek near Moccasin Bend.
The contractor for this $5.3 million project is Highways, Inc. from Brentwood, Tennessee, and the estimated completion date for the project is August 31, 2011. Most of the work is scheduled to take place at night between the hours of 7:00 p.m. - 6:00 a.m. Sundays through Thursdays. However, there will be at least eight weekends where the contractor will be allowed to have lane closures beginning at 7:00 p.m. Friday night and ending by 6:00 a.m. Monday morning.
