TDOT informed the City of Alcoa that construction operations associated with the Alcoa Highway work will require nighttime operations consisting of striping, grinding and setting barrier rail to prepare for the future lane shifts. This work will occur on northbound Alcoa Highway (SR 115) starting Sunday, June 20th and ending Tuesday, June 22nd. Upon completion of the work, traffic will shift to the inside lane while also reducing the lane width on the northbound side between the Hall Road (SR 35) overpass on Alcoa Highway and the northbound Hall Road merge with northbound Alcoa Highway. This lane configuration will be in place until construction requires additional shifts in traffic.
Motorists should take extra care and allow additional travel time to reach their destination when traveling through this location.
