Construction on "The Spur" underway in Sevier Co.

PIGEON FORGE, Tenn (WVLT) It will probably take you a little longer to get from Gatlinburg to Pigeon Forge over the next few months.

Contractors closed a lane of traffic through the northbound tunnel on the Spur today to fix lighting and drainage problems.

Work on the tunnel in the area will continue until early April.

As part of a 6.3 million dollar project, workers will also repair a rock slide, increase clearance of an overpass, and repave the nearly five mile stretch.
