KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – The Tennessee Department of Transportation has opened Exit 141 (Huntsville/Oneida) for Interstate 75 northbound traffic in an effort to improve detours for local motorists in and around Campbell County following a rockslide that shutdown the interstate last weekend. Message boards are in place to direct motorists in the area.
I-75 remains closed in both directions due to a rockslide that occurred Friday, February 26, at Mile Marker 142. Southbound lanes of I-75 are expected to be reopened on or before March 17, and one lane on the northbound side is expected to be reopened on or before March 24. The entire repair project is scheduled to be complete on or before April 15, 2016.
All previously established detours are still in place. Drivers are advised to plan ahead and seek alternate routes.
