The Chickamauga Dam lock is getting ready to be replaced.
Tuesday night is a public meeting where you can learn more about when you'll be hearing explosions.
Crews will be doing work beside the existing lock and below the Dam. These will be controlled blasts.
Work is expected to start in about 2 weeks with the blasts will be during the day, but not during heavy traffic. We might not see any interruptions of traffic at all. The meeting will be held in the Humanities Building Auditorium at Chattanooga State Community College. The meeting will be at 6 PM on August 8, 2017. This informative meeting will detail anticipated blast operations.
