UPDATE: TDOT to hold public meetings to answer questions about I-75/I-24 project
As construction begins in earnest at the Interstate 75/24 junction, the Tennessee Department of Transportation will hold a series of public information meetings to answer questions.
The meetings will be held during the last full week in September and will take place in East Brainerd, East Ridge and Brainerd.
Attendees can expect the same presentation will be given at each meeting, so members of the public can choose the meeting that is most convenient for them to attend. Representatives from TDOT and the contractor will be present to provide information and answer questions, TDOT's Jennifer Flynn said.
The meetings will take place from 5:30pm to 7:00pm EDT with the presentation given at approximately 6:00pm.
