TDOT Still calling for Late July Completion

June 2018

Grandview, TN  —  The SR-68 slide project is progressing well. Since we opened traffic to one lane controlled with a temporary signalThe short stretch of Highway between Spring City and Grandview collapsed back in April, 2018.

Having to wait at a traffic signal is better than the long detour that everyone was having to take when the road was closed.  Contractor LLC is making steady progress but recent frequent severe showers have slowed work a bit.  There is also delays caused by materials being delivered with traffic backup caused by one lane road created for the one lane bypass for traffic at the construction site.  TDOT is still hopeful that work can be completed by late July.

Thanks to Jennifer Flynn, Community Relations Officer for Region 2 (parts of East and Middle Tennessee) for the updates and photographs.
