UPDATE: CDOT reopens one lane of Lake Resort Drive
UPDATE: The Chattanooga Department of Transportation has opened one lane of Lake Resort Drive.
"Lake Resort Drive is temporarily operating as a one-lane road between the roundabout at Hwy 153 and Lake Resort Terrace," a CDOT spokesperson explained.
The road was closed because it had "settled significantly," according to Chattanooga Public Works.
CDOT said engineers will keep an eye on the westbound lane while they work to repair the closed eastbound lane.
"Traffic signals are in place to allow one direction through at a time," the spokesperson added.
It is possible CDOT will close both lanes again if need be.
They ask drivers to use Hamill Road and Highway 153 as detours.
