As work continues on the U.S. 27 expansion project, TDOt will close the on-ramp from eastbound MLK Boulevard to U.S. 27 North for three months.

The closure goes into effect Saturday, September 10 and will last until the ramp work is completed in December.

TDOT says that by totally closing the ramp, this phase of work can be completed in three months instead of twelve months and lessen the overall impact to motorists.
