Nearly complete: Chattanooga's $32 million I-24, South Broad Street interchange opens to traffic

The new frontage road that starts on South Broad and goes east toward Market Street appears to be complete with striping and all the traffic lights installed Thursday.

Traffic has been turned loose on the last piece of the $32 million Interstate 24-South Broad Street improvement project on Chattanooga's Southside as the newly constructed frontage road paralleling the freeway quietly opened this week.
