Repair work scheduled for I-75 this weekend
Crews from the Tennessee Department of Transportation will again be working this weekend, this time repair a section of concrete I-75 North in Hamilton County.
The work is scheduled to begin at 7:00pm on Friday, Friday, November 2, 2018 and end by or before noon EST on Sunday, November 4, 2018.
Drivers will see TDOT crews between Exit 7 (Bonny Oaks Drive/Old Lee Hwy.) and Exit 9 (Volkswagen Drive) working in the area to be repaired lane #2 (from the left), so the fast lane (lane #1) will also be closed during the work.
The repair work will involve sawing and removing damaged concrete slabs and re-pouring them with new concrete, which will need several hours to harden enough to handle traffic.
Two lanes will remain open to traffic during this work.
As soon as the concrete hardens enough to pass strength tests, all lanes will be reopened to traffic.
While the work takes place, the Tennessee Highway Patrol and a truck-mounted attenuator with a message board will be on site to assist with traffic control and information. Drivers should obey the signage and pay close attention to changing conditions in the work zone.
This concrete repair work is being done as part of a statewide on-call concrete repair contract and is weather dependent.
