As part of the I-75/I-24 design-build interchange modification project in Hamilton County, TDOT contract crews will open a new ramp for access to I-75 North and I-24 West from the Welcome Center and Northbound U.S 41/Ringgold Road. (See attached exhibit)
At 7:00 a.m. EDT on Friday, July 9, exiting Welcome Center traffic will follow the new ramp alignment to the split where motorists will be presented with an option to exit left for I-24 West or continue straight to merge onto I-75 North. Overhead signs will facilitate these new movements.
At 7:00 a.m. EDT on Friday, July 9, traffic will enter the new ramp alignment from Northbound U.S. 41/Ringgold Road and merge with Welcome Center traffic.
