    Default I-75 is closed in TN

    A rockslide has closed I-75 in northern TN between Caryville and Jellico for "weeks to come". Northbound detour is US-25W, southbound detour is TN-297 and TN-63. Expect lengthy delays as the alternates are narrow mountain roads. The "wide load" detour is US-25E at Corbin KY/I-81/I-40.

    As a child I drove between Ohio and Tennessee on US 25 numerous times, before I-75 was built. There were lengthy delays back then. With the amount of traffic that flows along I-75 today, especially as Spring Break is about to begin, I can only image the delays! Drive safe.

    The southbound lanes have been reopened, northbound is still closed. TNDot is trying to get one northbound lane open by March 24, with the whole road open by April 15.
