Beware I 75 work this weekend

Crews will shut down 3 lanes between Ooltewah and Shallowford

CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – TDOT warns you might want to avoid I 75 this weekend in Chattanooga.

Crews will be repairing damaged concrete slabs, making bridge repairs and putting in new pavement markings for the next several weekends.

This weekend, they will shut down three lanes on the southbound side between the Ooltewah and Shallowford Roads exits.

So interstate traffic will be reduced to just two lanes.

It starts at 9 PM Friday and will continue through 6 AM on Monday morning.

The process will include removing damaged concrete an re-pouring them with new concrete, which will take several hours to harden.

Of course, that’s all dependent on the weather.

The project will continue through several weekends, but take Memorial Day weekend off.
