TDOT Halts Interstate Construction for Easter Travel Holiday

Tuesday, March 26, 2013 | 09:20 am

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Tennessee Department of Transportation will suspend all interstate construction work this Easter weekend in anticipation of increased holiday travel.

TDOT crews and contractors will stop all road construction work that requires lane closures beginning Thursday, March 28 at 6:00 p.m. through Monday, April 1 at 6:00 a.m.  This will provide maximum roadway capacity to motorists expected to travel across the state this holiday weekend.

“Suspending interstate construction in Tennessee during the Easter holiday will permit a free flow of traffic and reduce potential delays,” said TDOT Commissioner John Schroer.  “I also encourage motorists to download the SmartWay Mobile App to get up-to-the minute traffic information before they hit the road this weekend.”

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. – At approximately 6:30 a.m. CDT this morning, a rockslide occurred on SR-16 (Rowe Gap Road/Keith Springs Mtn.) in Franklin County, totally closing the road near log mile 17.7.  The rockslide occurred in the same location where a $2.4 million TDOT rockslide mitigation project is currently underway.  Because the rockslide occurred at the site of an active project, personnel from Highways, Inc. are already in the area and can quickly mobilize to address the rockslide.  TDOT and contractor personnel are assessing the area to determine when the roadway can safely be reopened, and crews and equipment will move in soon to begin the clearing the roadway. 

While the road is closed, only local passenger car traffic will be allowed to use Iron Gap Road (a narrow county road) as a detour around the site. Truck traffic will not be allowed to use this road and will have to seek alternate routes.  The average daily traffic count along this section of SR-16 is approximately 780 vehicles per day.
