Motorists traveling on I-640 East and West in Knox County should be aware of upcoming road construction activities that will have an effect on traffic.

Beginning at 7 p.m. on Sunday, July 10, I-640 East and West will be reduced from three lanes to two lanes and traffic shifted between Mile Marker 6 (Broadway exit) and I-40.  This is the start of rubblization activities in the area, and lane closures will be in place 24/7.

This schedule is contingent on favorable weather conditions. Motorists should expect delays and are advised to use extreme caution in this area as workers will be present.
