Emergency fix planned for Access Road ramp at Highway 153

The state has awarded an emergency contract to repair the access ramp from Highway 153 to Access Road/Lake Resort Drive.

The on-ramp to Highway 153 has been closed since Jan. 6 because of pavement failure.

Because the repair involves excavating and rebuilding the entire slope and roadway, both the on-ramp and the off-ramp from Highway 153 will be closed for the duration, said Tennessee Department of Transportation spokeswoman Jennifer Flynn.

Work is expected to start Monday and be complete Feb. 7, Flynn said. Detours will be posted.

The contractor is Highways Inc., of Brentwood, Tenn., and the contract is for $455,346.25.
