Improvements at Ooltewah Interchange at Exit 11 Included
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. – Tennessee Department of Transportation Commissioner Gerald Nicely announced today the early completion of the $52 million I-75 widening project in Hamilton County. The newly widened section of interstate was fully opened to traffic back on July 1, 2010, nearly six months ahead of schedule. Since that time, crews have been working to put the finishing touches on the project and completed their final work on August 12, 2010, over four months ahead of the scheduled December 31, 2010 completion.
“The Ooltewah-Collegedale area is one of the fastest growing areas in southeast Tennessee,” said TDOT Commissioner Gerald Nicely. “The extra interstate lanes and improved interchange at Exit 11 will improve traffic flow and the overall efficiency of this stretch of I-75.”
