LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – If all goes well Monday night, by the time your read this Tuesday morning the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) and Rogers Group hope to have all the travel lanes both east and west bound paved, and they did. The last paving laid down was not long after 3am, and paving crews had all left the work area before 4am leaving only the striping team to finish the lines and dotted lines on the westbound side.

TDOT and Rogers Group remind you to slow down and drive carefully through the night time work zone.

There will still be more milling work to be done on the shoulder and the side streets before they are paved.  (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 09/19/2023-6AM)
