The partial ramp closure scheduled to take place this weekend on the ramp from I-75 South to I-24 West in Chattanooga has been cancelled. Due to weather, the contract crews were unable to complete the necessary preparations needed to perform the work this weekend. The work will be rescheduled to take place at a later date.
This work is part of the I-75/I-24 design-build interchange modification project in Chattanooga, Hamilton County. C.W. Matthews Contracting Co., Inc. is the contractor for the $132.6-million project, which is slated for completion in June 2021.

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.
