KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Just when you thought the number of interstate ramp projects couldn't get any higher, guess again. Weather permitting, watch for a number of new interstate projects to kick off this week.

The first is the ramp from Interstate 640 West to I-40 West in West Knoxville.

Beginning Tuesday night at 7:00, the Tennessee Department of Transportation warns a lane closure will reduce the ramp from two lanes to one as crews perform a bridge deck overlay.

This lane closure will remain in effect around the clock until repairs are completed.You need to watch for slow traffic and potential delays.

TDOT is also alerting motorists of changes on the ramp from I-40 eastbound to 17th Street.

Beginning Tuesday you can expect a width reduction on this ramp as crews perform bridge repairs. TDOT reminds us to be alert for changed conditions, workers present and use extreme caution when exiting I-40 West at 17th..
