Study will recommend fixes for congestion, safety on I-24

Posted: Updated:

Solving traffic snarls on Interstate 24 in Chattanooga most likely won't involve building double-decker lanes around Moccasin Bend or drilling a new truck tunnel through Missionary Ridge, as suggested by a couple of commuters.
