Weekend interstate work is just getting ready for the big project to come

CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – The Tennessee Department of Transportation is preparing to take on one of the largest road projects in the state next fall.

It’s at the I-24/75 split and a TDOT contractor is already doing preliminary work there.

During the construction, some shoulders may be closed between 9 AM and 3 PM.

TDOT officials want drivers to be extra cautious on the roads.

“There will be lane closures so people need to just pay attention when they are driving out there at night. Don’t get distracted by the lights and just drive through and be as safe as you can.”

TDOT expects this project to be finished by the summer of 2021.

You can expect delays all weekend.
