CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. – Drivers traveling on I-24 in Marion County should be aware of upcoming road construction activities that will have an impact on traffic. On Wednesday, February 21, and Thursday, February 22, 2024, from 8:00 pm to 6:00 am local time each night, Tennessee Department of Transportation contract crews will perform a double lane closure on I-24 West between mile marker 136 and mile marker 140 to restripe travel lanes, meaning the interstate will be reduced to one lane in this direction.
