Chattanooga TDOT meeting to discuss I-24 in city

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -- The Tennessee Department of Transportation is studying how to improve Interstate 24.

The highway crosses the central part of the state diagonally and nowhere are the challenges to upgrading it more challenging than in Chattanooga.

TDOT spokeswoman Jennifer Flynn in Chattanooga told the Chattanooga Times Free Press that having a mountain and a railroad on one side of I-24 and the river on the other, options are limited.

Agency project manager Joan Barnfield said TDOT is at a stage where it wants people to tell it where they see problems and if they have any solutions to offer.

There is a public meeting at the Brainerd Community Center on April 25.

Barnfield said a consultant is identifying problems and helping find solutions.
