Clinch Avenue in Clinton will require repairs after heavy rains on Saturday caused the road bed to fail in the northbound lanes just north of the Lewallen Bridge, according to the Clinton Police Department.
The bridge is not affected, but the traffic lanes on Clinch Avenue (State Route 9) near South Charles G. Seivers Boulevard (State Route 61).
The Tennessee Department of Transportation currently has traffic restricted to one lane traveling in each direction, the CPD said Monday.
“The TDOT contractor for the Lewallen Bridge replacement project is working on repairs, and will continue working around the clock until the road is stabilized,” the CPD said. “Motorists should drive slowly and use caution when traveling through this work zone. Expect traffic back-ups and delays during peak hours for the next several days.”
The CPD said it will provide updates when new information becomes available.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
