Sinkhole Closes Southbound I-75 Near Tennessee Line

Southbound I-75 is closed just across the Tennessee line after a sinkhole developed Friday.

Traffic is being diverted onto U.S. 25W at the Jellico exit (Tennessee Exit 160) due to a sinkhole that has developed 17 miles south.

Motorists not transporting wide loads will be able to follow U.S. 25W to LaFollette, where they can return to I-75 at Exit 134.
Motorists transporting wide loads will be required to take Tennessee State Route 297 to its junction with Tennessee State Route 63, then back onto I-75.

Tennessee Department of Transportation officials say there is no timetable for repairs.
