The speed limit is now 35 mph.
It will remain in effect for the duration of the project (April 3, 2015).


Phase 2 – Douglas Dam Road (SR-139) to south of the I-40 Interchange:

Phase 2 is Complete!


Phase 3 - Boyds Creek Highway (SR-338) to Douglas Dam Road (SR-139):

Crews continue to work on the southbound bridge widening; pictured below crews are placing concrete for an approach slab.  Utility relocations are starting to close in toward completion.  Base stone placement, curb and gutter construction, and asphalt paving for the new outside lanes are being completed in available sections.  Installation of the 72” concrete pipe is ongoing along the southbound side, as well. 

Next week, crews will must close the right southbound lane between Huffaker Road and Two Rivers Boulevard from 7:00 pm to 6:00 am nightly on Tuesday (2/10), Wednesday (2/11) and Thursday (2/12) to work along the outside edge of the lane.  Motorists should expect delays and use extreme caution when traveling through the work zone. 

Additionally, short duration traffic stops should be expected daily throughout the project as crews move equipment and materials in and out of the work zone.  If you have any questions regarding the project, please call us at 865.429.4509.  As always, please use extreme caution and reduce speed  through the work zone.
