Expecting backups today on I-75 South

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT)--TDOT officials are expecting major backups today on I-75 South in Campbell Co. into Tennessee. Motorists should consider alternate routes starting at Exit 160 (Jellico) including US 25W or State Route 297.

I-75 South goes down to one lane from MM 144 to MM 141 due to the land slide that occurred a few weeks ago. That, coupled with increased vacation traffic, is contributing to the extent of backups.
