East Ridge tunnel back open in both lanes

EAST RIDGE, Tennessee (WDEF) – TDOT reports that the slope repair at the Bachman Tunnel is now complete on the East Ridge side.

Westbound traffic had been blocked for a few weeks while crews worked on the slope following a mudslide that blocked the road.

The slope work is now done, but TDOT crews will do more work on the ditch later on.

So we can expect some more traffic disruptions, but only in off-hours.

The GeoStabilization International crew is still working on a second slide site, but that won’t affect traffic.
