Motorists traveling on I-40 in Knox County should be alert for resurfacing activities that will have an affect on traffic next week.


Beginning Sunday, March 29, I-40 East and West will experience lane closures between West Hills (MM 380.4) and Pellissippi Parkway (MM 376.1).  These closures will occur intermittently in both directions between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m., Sunday, March 29 through Thursday, April 2.  The speed limit will be reduced from 65 mph to 55 mph while workers are present.


Delays are likely during these resurfacing activities.  Motorists should use extreme caution through this area as workers will be present. This schedule is contingent on favorable weather conditions.

In 2016, the Tennessee Department of Transportation lost three workers in the line of duty. All three were struck by passing motorists. Those tragedies bring the total number of TDOT lives lost to 112. We don’t want to lose another member of our TDOT family. We’re asking you to WORK WITH US.
