CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) - TDOT says they plan to begin repaving U.S. 127, or Signal Mountain Road, on Monday.

The project will start just south of Glendale Drive.

Work will be done during daylight hours, usually from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. 

The contractor will have one lane closed in order to begin milling and paving operations. 

Where possible, one lane of traffic will be maintained in each direction. However there are portions of the project that will require traffic to be reduced to a single lane controlled by flaggers. 

Traffic delays are expected. 

There are several alternate routes that can be used to avoid this construction and local motorists are encouraged to use them during this project or to factor in possible delays to their travel times. 

The project is expected to be complete by August.
