TDOT Contractor Completes Second Slope Stabilization Project on U.S. 127  (Signal Mountain Blvd.) in Hamilton County

 – TDOT contract  crews from GeoStabilization International, LLC (GSI) have completed a slope  stabilization project on a section of U.S. 127 (Signal Mountain Boulevard) in  Hamilton County near log mile 16.05.  This is the second slope stabilization  repair that TDOT has completed on U.S. 127 since late July 2018.  In addition to  this site at log mile 16.05, crews successfully completed repairs to the slope  near log mile 15.97 in October. On Wednesday,  November 28, 2018, TDOT maintenance crews will remove the concrete barrier rails  near log mile 16.05 and replace them with barrels.  After the barrier rails are  removed, TDOT crews will begin paving operations on the area of roadway behind  the barrels.  The temporary traffic signals will remain in place to move traffic  through the work zone on Wednesday.   On Thursday,  November 29, 2018 at approximately 8:30 a.m. EST, the temporary traffic signals  will be removed and flaggers will assist with traffic until the paving work is  fully completed.  Crews will pave and install pavement markings and guardrail.   This phase of work should be completed on or before Friday, November 30, 2018.   As soon as this work is complete, the roadway will be reopened to two lanes.   The road will  remain in this two-lane configuration until next spring. Next spring GSI  will repair a third site near log mile 16.14 that was targeted by TDOT  geotechnical engineers as one that would benefit from the soil nail repair  method that was used at both of the other locations.  In the meantime, TDOT  maintenance crews will place pavement at the third site to seal any cracks that  could cause problems during the winter, and they will continue to regularly  monitor the area for any changes.

As always, drivers are reminded to use all motorist information tools  wisely and Know Before You Go! by checking travel conditions before  leaving for your destination. Drivers should never tweet, text or talk on a cell  phone while behind the wheel. In 2016, the  Tennessee Department of Transportation lost three workers in the line of duty.  All three were struck by passing motorists. Those tragedies bring the total  number of TDOT lives lost to 112. We don’t want to lose another member of our  TDOT family. We’re asking you to WORK WITH US.
