Southbound I-75 Reopens in Tennessee; Northbound Closed Until March 24
Southbound Interstate 75 in Tennessee near the Kentucky line was reopened the night of March 9 after a rockslide on Feb. 26 closed the roadway.
Northbound lanes in Campbell County, Tennessee, remain closed because of the rockslide, Kentucky State Police said.
Regular traffic can exit at northbound Exit 134, follow U.S. 25 West to LaFollete, Tennessee, continue to Jellico and then re-enter I-75 North, according to state police.
Wide-load traffic can take Interstate 40 East, get onto Interstate 81 North and then take Exit 8 onto U.S. 25 West, according to state police. Wide-load traffic can re-enter I-75 North at Exit 29 in Corbin, Kentucky.
At least one northbound lane should be reopened by March 24, according to state police. All repairs are projected to be complete by April 15.
