Motorists: Expect some delays this weekend on area roads

Posted: Updated:

The Tennessee Department of Transportation has scheduled road work this weekend that may affect motorists traveling around the region.

The primary consideration for those headed to Nashville will be the work on Interstate 24 in Grundy County.

In Bradley and Hamilton Counties, re-surfacing on Interstate 75 north of the weigh station may have an impact on travel.

Motorists are advised to be alert and mindful of workers and equipment in construction zones, and the slower speed limits.
