Entering an area that is closed off, like this black car on the right did, could create some problems for you in the construction zone along Stiner Hwy/Hwy 63. This car is in an area that had just been milled, and the drop off from the pavement is fairly deep.

LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – There are some areas in the construction zone on the Gen. Carl Stiner Highway (Hwy 63) that pose problems if traveled into.

WLAF’s Charlie Hutson was shooting some photos via Eagle I on Wednesday evening when he heard a strange noise. He turned around to look down the valley saw a car coming in the marked off lane construction crews had just milled up. “I look and see a woman “just getting it,” and I think she may have torn some of the under carriage out. She just kept on going, and she turned off onto Old Middlesboro Highway,” said Hutson.

The black car kept going, with some apparent damage, on through the restricted lane.

“As you can see by the shadows on each side of Skyview Lane, it is milled fairly deep except between the two barrels where you turn in on Skyview Lane,” said Hutson. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 09/22/2022-6AM-PHOTOS COURTESY OF WLAF’S CHARLIE HUTSON)
