The traffic circle at Igou Gap and Jenkins Roads enters the final phase of construction Tuesday.

Traffic patterns will shift, and require the closing of southbound Jenkins Road, between Igou Gap Road and the recently-opened Goodwin Road.

The other quadrants of the traffic circle will be opened to traffic, according to a news release from the Chattanooga Traffic Department.

The posted detour route for southbound Jenkins Road will be:

  • West on Goodwin Road to southbound Gunbarrel Road
  • East on Igou Gap Road to Jenkins Road  

The final phase of construction will take about two weeks and the road should should re-open by Tuesday, August 12.
