The Tennessee Department of Transportation operations crews will perform slope maintenance along U.S. Hwy. 41 in Chattanooga between Broad Street and State Route 148 from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday.
Because this work involves removing rocks from the slope, lane closures will be necessary for the safety of the traveling public. During the work, there will be only one lane accessible to through traffic, and it will be controlled by flaggers.
Drivers are advised to use alternate routes during this work. Those who must travel in this area are advised to plan ahead and build in extra time to reach their destination.
