UPDATE: Drivers should plan ahead because the W Road will close for several hours again Wednesday.

The Hamilton County Highway Department said the road will be closed from 9:00 am - 3:00 pm for road maintenance.

The road was closed for a while Monday while crews worked to repair the gates used to close the road during washouts or other road conditions.


PREVIOUS STORY: The Hamilton County Highway Department says the W Road will be closed for 2 or 3 hours beginning at 9:30 AM and should re-open around or before noon.

The closure is so crews can repair the gates used to close the road during washouts or other road conditions that plague the windy roadway.

Drivers can take Signal Mountain Road or Roberts Mill as alternative routes.
