I-75 Reopens After Sinkhole Closes Lanes

Knoxville (WVLT) - Some good news for drivers passing through Loudon County along I-75.

A sinkhole that closed down the northbound lanes of I-75 in Loudon County, at Exit 68, has been repaired and all lanes are back open.

TDOT worked all night and part of the morning to make the repairs.

TDOT says sinkholes are very common in that part of the county and this one was most likely caused by the weekend rain.
