State Route 141 to be closed for repairs


The Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) has announced that repair work will be done on State Route 141 in DeKalb County beginning on Sept. 6.


To correct issues with some cracking of the asphalt that has occurred in the pavement of the super elevated curve, the contractor must close the roadway to make the necessary repairs. This is scheduled to begin on Sept. 6 after the Labor Day holiday.


It is expected to be closed for 2-3 weeks maximum during this time. The contractor has notified the school boards, local officials and 911 of the expected closure and signs will be reinstalled alerting motorists of the expected closure.


The work is apparently part of a slide repair between log mile 0.93 and log mile 1.10 which included grading, drainage, and paving.


Jones Brothers, Inc. will be doing the work.
