    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.

    Motorist Detours (standard vehicles)

    • Motorists traveling I-75 South can take Exit 160 (Jellico). Follow US 25W / SR 297 West to SR 63 South, and then re-enter I-75 South.
    • Motorists traveling I-75 North can take Exit 134 (Caryville/Jacksboro/LaFollette). Follow US 25W north to LaFollette, continuing to Jellico, and then re-enter I-75 North.
    Wide-Load and Alternate Motorist Detours

    • Wide-load traffic traveling I-75 South can take Exit 29 (Corbin) in Kentucky. Follow US 25E into Tennessee, and enter I-81 at Exit 8 (Morristown/White Pine).
    • Wide-load traffic traveling I-75 North can take I-40 East to I-81 North Exit 8 (Morristown/White Pine). Follow US 25E, and enter I-75 at Exit 29 (Corbin) in Kentucky.

    25 isn't a problem. I run it a lot just cause. It isn't as fast as interstate but it won't slow you much. Carry on!

    I ran 25E all the way down to 81. Lots of lights and obviously a ton of traffic. I was 75K too so that didn't help matters much.

    Northeast is one strange place.
    There's loads here that go 150 miles within that pay more revenue than loads going 700 miles leaving.
