Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

If you live in the East Brainerd area and use I-75 north, this is for you. Frequent travelers of this exchange know how quickly traffic can back up and the chaos that creates.

The closure is necessary to change the design of the exit ramp for motorists; work is expected to take several more weeks to complete.

The Tennessee Department of Transportation will close the I-75 Northbound off-ramp at East Brainerd Road Eastbound from Friday, June 7 at 8:00 p.m. until 6:00 a.m. on Monday, June 10 for concrete paving operations.
 
During the closure, the Tennessee Highway Patrol and flaggers will be present to assist with traffic control.  

Message boards and Dynamic Message Signs will be utilized to notify drivers of the closure. During the ramp closure,  traffic normally using this ramp will be detoured to the Shallowford Road exit.
 
The work is part of a $606,517 safety improvement project, scheduled to be finalized this month.  
 
The work is dependent upon the weather conditions, and could be rescheduled if bad weather occurs.
