Beware of I-24 roadwork this weekend
Chattanooga, TN (WDEF) – There is a caution to drivers traveling in downtown Chattanooga this weekend.
TDOT crews will be making concrete repairs this weekend on I-24 westbound at the US 27 split downtown.
Traffic will be slowed and T-DOT is urging drivers to avoid the area.
Jennifer Flynn with TDOT says “It’s an area that has been deteriorating, and we get a lot of complaints about it and we have a good weather weekend, so we are going to get in there and make those repairs, we want to get done before Labor Day, before football season really kicks in and so we’re just taking this opportunity.”
The Williams Street entrance ramp may also get some repairs this weekend, but it will remain open.
Merging at the top of the ramp shouldn’t be a problem, as it will be just past the area of the interstate where the right lane will be closed.
