All Lanes Open on State Route 25 in Smith County
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – On Tuesday, May 21, the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) reopened all lanes on SR 25 (Dixon Springs Highway) in Smith County. The roadway has been closed since a rockslide on May 9th blocked both lanes near the Cumberland River Overlook.
TDOT initiated an emergency contract last Monday, and cleanup began immediately. Paving operations were completed late this afternoon, allowing contract crews to reopen SR 25 three days ahead of schedule.
