LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – The Middlesboro Road-Wildwood Circle intersection on Highway 63/The General Carl Stiner Highway may be the busiest intersection in the entire construction zone. Work on Wildwood Circle is soon to begin.

In a report from TDOT to WLAF, here is an update on this item on Monday, May 2, the contractor intends to start work at Wildwood Circle. In a similar manner to the other side roads, the contractor will need to temporarily close this road to allow for grading and paving in this area.

The contractor intends to continuously progress at Wildwood Circle until its completion. It is anticipated this closure will last approximately 14 days. During this temporary closure, traffic will be detoured around to the alternate Back Valley Road. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 04/26/2022-6AM-PHOTO COURTESY OF WLAF’S CHARLIE HUTSON)
