TDOT Crews To Fix Big Pothole On I-24 West At Spring Creek Road Overpass On Wednesday

Tuesday, February 05, 2013

TDOT maintenance crews on Wednesday will be performing an emergency repair of a very large pothole in the middle lane of I-24 West under the Spring Creek Road overpass at mm 185 in Chattanooga.

The work will begin at 9 a.m. and is scheduled to be complete by no later than 1 p.m.

Because of the location of the repair, it will necessitate rolling road blocks and temporary ramp closures along the major routes leading to the work area. In addition to I-24 West, there will also be rolling road blocks on I-75 North beginning at the Georgia state line and on SR-153 South beginning at the Shallowford Road exit.

TDOT maintenance and incident management personnel will assist with traffic control during the work.
