State transportation officials said the right lane of U.S. 27 North from the Olgiati Bridge to Manning Street will be closed beginning at 7 p.m. today to implement a new traffic shift.
Beginning Friday morning, traffic traveling north on U.S. 27 will be doing so on the new bridges and pavement. This new alignment will be in place until the contractor completes work on the center section of U.S. 27, according to Jennifer Flynn, regional community relations officer for the Tennessee Department of Transportation.
Tennessee Highway Patrol staff will be onsite tonight to assist with traffic control as the shift occurs, Flynn said in a news release. Weather or unforeseen circumstances could prevent this work from happening, and the shift will occur on the next available night, she said.
