TDOT contract crews will make concrete repairs this weekend on I-75 North in Hamilton County from mile marker 7.8 to mile marker 8.2 between Exit 7 (Bonny Oaks Drive/Old Lee Highway) and Exit 9 (Volkswagen Drive).
The area to be repaired is in lane #2, so the fast lane (lane #1) will also be closed during the work. The work will take place beginning at 8 p.m.
on Friday and ending by or before 6 a.m. on Monday. This work will consist of sawing and removing damaged concrete slabs and re-pouring them with new concrete, which will need several hours to harden enough to handle traffic.
Two lanes will remain open to traffic during this work.
As soon as the concrete hardens enough to pass strength tests, all lanes will be reopened to traffic.
While this work takes place, the Tennessee Highway Patrol and a truck-mounted attenuator with a message board will be on site to assist with traffic control and information. Drivers are urged to obey the signage and pay close attention to changing conditions in the work zone.
This concrete repair work is being done as part of a statewide on-call concrete repair contract. This work is weather dependent. Should weather or unforeseen circumstances postpone this work, it will be rescheduled to take place as soon as possible.
