-A A +A

A pair of bridge replacement projects will temporarily close Hwy. 72, the South of the River roadway to Loudon County from Roane County.
Tennessee Department of Transportation officials announced the roadway would be closed to traffic beginning Friday and should be reopened to traffic by Monday, Oct. 24, at 6 a.m.
The bridges being repaired are over Paint Rock Creek and Stamp Creek.
The Tennessee Department of Transportation put up signs along Kentucky Street near the Interstate 40 exchange this week announcing the roads closure.
Detours around the area include Hwy. 58, Hwy. 70 and Interstate 75.
Drivers needing to access the area between the two bridges should use Hwy. 322.
