Big hole. Big project. Monday’s been an extra busy day for one LUB crew.

LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – The east side entrance-exit of Old Jacksboro Pike was closed about all day Monday as an LUB crew replaced a section of water line under the road.

Water continues to stream a little out of the pipe where it was cut on Monday morning.
A crack in this 10-inch cast iron line was replaced.

The crew was alerted of the problem around 7:00 Monday morning and went right to work. The slow lane of the four lane was blocked off sending all Jacksboro bound traffic into the left lane while the ten-inch cast iron line was replaced.

A truck full of gravel waits to fill the hole back in once the pipe is replaced.
