TDOT creating temporary lane on I-75 North in Campbell Co. after slide near TN-KY state line

Starting August 4, TDOT crews will be building a temporary travel lane along the inside shoulder, allowing for them to do work on the slope.

CAMPBELL COUNTY, Tenn. — The Tennessee Department of Transportation said it is working to create a temporary lane after a slide on I-75 North in Campbell County, around 9 miles from the state line into Kentucky.

TDOT said it happened around Mile Marker 151 and closed the outside shoulder. They said their staff is watching the site and the department is evaluating options for permanent repairs.

Starting August 4, crews began building a temporary travel lane along the inside shoulder so they can shift traffic away from the slope failure. It will also give crews more room to work.

They said it could take between three and five days to build the temporary lane, depending on the weather. A lane would likely be closed while building it, according to a release from the department.

"Motorists are advised to use caution when traveling through this area due to ongoing maintenance and construction activities," said a spokesperson with TDOT. "We will provide additional information as it becomes available."
