Traffic is backed up for more than five miles during road repairs on I-75 northbound at Mile Marker 151.

KNOXVILLE, TN (SPECIAL TO WLAF) – Motorists traveling on I-75 North in Campbell County should be aware of upcoming road construction activities that will have an effect on traffic on Wednesday.

Beginning at 8 a.m. Wednesday, December 21, one lane will be closed on I-75 North between Mile Markers 151.5 and 152.5, approximately 9 miles from the Tennessee/Kentucky state line.

This schedule is contingent on favorable weather conditions.  Motorists are advised to use extreme caution in this area as workers will be present. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 12/20/2022-4PM)
