Alternatives to new I-75/I-24 interchange coming

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA (AP) - Tennessee transportation officials will unveil ideas for rebuilding a very busy interchange between two interstate highways in Chattanooga.

Alternatives will be presented Wednesday afternoon about what could be a $100 million project to better connect Interstate 24 with Interstate 75.

Sgt. Gary Martin of the Chattanooga Police Department's traffic division told the Chattanooga Times Free Press he's lost count of the number of crashes he has worked at the interchange. Martin said a curve there is notorious for flipping over tractor-trailer trucks.

TDOT spokeswoman Jennifer Flynn said the reconstruction will be done on the current right of way to reduce the need to buy land.
