During this weekends lane closures, workers will remove and replace deteriorated concrete on a bridge and on various parts of the road. Once the concrete is poured, it will have to harden for several hours. The bridge repairs are being completed as part of a $2.9 million interstate resurfacing project. The entire project is expected to be complete by May.
TDOT will use portable message boards to alert motorists of the lane closures. Motorists are advised to plan ahead and expect delays. Law enforcement officers will be on site in the work zone to provide traffic control as the work is being completed. TDOT also asks drivers to use caution, reduce their speed and be alert to changing traffic conditions in work zones across the state.
