The Tennessee Department of Transportation has closed both lanes of Interstate 75 South in Campbell County in northeast Tennessee on the Kentucky border, due the collapse of a section of embankment.


The earth under the interstate has continued to move since the collapse was discovered on Thursday near the Stinking Creek exit at mile marker 144. Traffic on I-75 Southbound will be detoured until the interstate can be repaired.

Effective immediately, I-75 South is closed at Mile Marker 160. Repairs could be completed at the site by March 23.

Detour routes are as follows:

* Detour at Exit 160 in Jellico and turn left to follow US 25W to LaFollette, then back to I-75 South at Exit 134 in Caryville.

* Wide loads must exit I-75 at Exit 160 in Jellico and turn right to follow SR 297 West to SR 63, then back to I-75 South at Exit 141.

Once a repair plan is finalized, TDOT will solicit contract bids and initiate a project to repair the interstate.
