Starting Friday at noon, TDOT will shut down road work for the Labor Day weekend.
Now that the extension of the James White Parkway has been effectively
killed, drivers in both Knox and Sevier counties are hopeful TDOT will
do something to repair nearby Chapman Highway.
It caused quite a scare for commuters Tuesday morning when they spotted the asphalt crumbling.
Crews were able to remove debris from the roadway and the blocked lane was reopened early Tuesday morning, according to an N.C. Department of Transportation bulletin.
In an effort to answer some environmental concerns, TDOT has presented
an alternative route for the proposed James White Parkway extension.
