Drivers who have been avoiding the Highway 10 construction zone due to the temporary traffic light will be pleased to note that the signal with the 3-minute delay has now been removed.
According to Macon County Mayor Steve Jones, “The Highway is now open with two lanes all the way up and down. The red light has been taken down and throughout the winter months the road will remain as it is now. There should not be any blockages unless it is for unloading a truck or something like that. There are some walls that are left to be built and some grade still has to be cut down along the left side going down. The hard part is all done. Now it’s just working on the lower side and get some walls built.”
Kathryn Schulte, Community Relations Officer of Tennessee Department of Transportation stated, “As of last week we now have two lanes of traffic open and the temporary traffic signal has been removed. Most of the work right now is on retaining walls 2, 3, and 4. The estimated completion date is August, 31, 2017.
