LAFOLLETTE, TN. (WLAF)- Progress on the Highway 63 road project is being made. Locust Dr. and Glade Springs Rd. should reopen today, according to Tennessee Department of Transportation officials.  

Upon completion of these side roads, the contractor will proceed forward with constructing Louis Sharp Rd., Petry Rd., and Cross Valley Rd.  Construction on these roads should begin today.

The contractor will need to temporarily close these side roads to complete this work. A closure at this location is necessary to allow the contractor to perform grade work as well as pave the side roads. Traffic will be temporarily detoured to the nearby side streets while this work is taking place. It is anticipated these closures will last approximately two weeks but will be dependent upon weather and subsurface conditions. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED 7/11/2023 2:10PM)
