I-640 bridge work next week could cause traffic delays


KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Bridge repairs on Interstate 640 next week could cause some traffic backups for drivers.

The Tennessee Department of Transportation says beginning Monday March 17 at 7 p.m., The I-640 eastbound and westbound bridges over I-275 will be reduced from three lanes to two lanes.

Crews will work around the clock until the work is finished.

Work will also begin at that time on the ramp from I-640 westbound to I-40 westbound and the ramp from I-40 eastbound to I-640 westbound.

The ramps will be reduced from two lanes to one lane. Those crews will work around the clock as well.

TDOT says drivers should expect delays and use extreme caution in those areas as workers will be present.

The work schedule may require adjustments in the event of inclement weather.
