Work gets underway to repair Alcoa Highway rockslide

Posted:

KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Repairs got underway Monday after an ice storm delayed the start of work to repair an Alcoa Highway rockslide.

The slide happened earlier this month near the Marine base.

The repair project was awarded to Kay and Kay Contracting last week.

One northbound lane will remain closed there while work is underway.

The Tennessee Department of Transportation says crews are expected to have all lanes open by Feb. 8 and the area cleared by the Feb. 15.
