TDOT has applied the breaks to a number of road projects around the area for the Easter holiday but on Monday the barrels will return.

Beginning Monday night, the single lane fly-over ramp from Interstate 640 East to Interstate 75 North will begin phase one of a bridge repair project. The ramp will not be closed but the ramp's width will be reduced. The width reduction will be in place until phase one repairs are complete. No exact timetable has been given for a completion date.

TDOT is urging motorists to avoid the area if possible because there will be delays. Trucks on Interstate 40 East traveling to Interstate 75 North should avoid Interstate 640 all together and follow Interstate 40 East to Interstate 275 North to Interstate 75.
