Road Work Causing Delays on Signal Mountain
SIGNAL MOUNTAIN, Tenn. (WDEF) – Drivers on Signal Mountain should expect delays as they go up and down the mountain for the next few weeks. There will be daily lane closures on Signal Mountain Road from Balmoral Drive to Sunset Drive. This is just past the spaceship house on the side of the mountain.
These closures will run from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day from Monday through Saturday.
According to TDOT, these closures are to allow crews to build a new drainage ditch and a retaining wall. Construction crews on site told News 12 that the area has had issues with water drainage, and this should fix the problem.
Drivers going both directions will be stopped and directed to go through the area. Expect delays especially during rush hour. TDOT says the project should last about two to three weeks.
