TDOT: I-81 North in Greene County reopens following multi-commercial vehicle crash


GREENE COUNTY, Tenn. (WATE) — The Tennessee Department of Transportation has reopened Interstate 81 North in Greene County following a multi-commercial vehicle crash.

Earlier Tuesday afternoon, TDOT put detour routes in place along I-81, near Mile Marker 36 due to the severity of the crash, and level of clean up needed.

Mark Nagi with TDOT says crews improvised a median crossover and were actively turning stuck traffic around, while crews were also clearing the wreckage.
