The Oak Ridge Public Works Department will close part of Tusculum Drive from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. starting Monday, August 7, so crews can replace a culvert under the road. The culvert replacement project is expected to be active until Wednesday, August 9, a press release said.
Residents will have access to their homes and driveways during this time, but the roadway will be closed to through traffic, the press release said.
“All work is subject to change based on such unknowns as the weather,” the release said. “Residents are urged to use extreme care and caution while driving in the area. All others are advised to use alternate routes.
“We apologize for any inconvenience this closure may cause and appreciate your patience.”
