Roadwork Updates for Upcoming Week

Roadway activity scheduled in Lower East and Upper Cumberland regions.

The Department of Transportation has announced an extensive list of roadwork activities scheduled to take place in the Lower East and Upper Cumberland regions from February 22nd through February 28th, 2024. Motorists traveling through these areas are advised to prepare for potential delays and plan their routes accordingly.

In the Lower East region, maintenance operations will primarily focus on pothole repairs and pavement restorations across various highways, including major routes such as Highway 101 and Interstate 59. These efforts aim to improve driving conditions and ensure the safety of all road users. Lane closures are expected, and traffic control measures will be in place to guide drivers through the work zones.

The Upper Cumberland area will see a series of bridge inspections and repairs, particularly on bridges along Interstate 75 and State Route 33. These critical inspections are part of ongoing efforts to maintain the structural integrity of the region’s bridges and prevent future disruptions. While work is underway, certain lanes may be temporarily closed, and detours will be clearly marked to facilitate smooth traffic flow.

Additionally, both regions will undergo routine landscaping and cleaning operations along the roadside and median areas. These activities are part of the Department of Transportation’s commitment to maintaining the aesthetic appeal and environmental health of the state’s roadways.

Motorists are encouraged to stay informed about the latest traffic updates and roadwork schedules by visiting the Department of Transportation’s website or subscribing to notification services. Patience and caution are urged when traveling through work zones, as these measures not only protect the road crews but also ensure the safety of the driving public.

The Department of Transportation appreciates the public’s cooperation and understanding as they work to enhance the region’s transportation infrastructure. With these upgrades and maintenance efforts, the Lower East and Upper Cumberland regions will continue to benefit from safer and more efficient roadways.
