Alcoa Highway map

This map created by city of Alcoa engineers shows upcoming shifts on U.S. Highway 129 that will happen Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, according to Tennessee Department of Transportation officials.

Southbound traffic near McGhee Tyson Airport will shift onto the new Alcoa Highway alignment beginning at 7 p.m. Sunday, Tennessee Department of Transportation officials said in a news release Friday.

Additionally, beginning at 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 25, northbound ramp access from Hunt Road to Alcoa Highway will close and the new ramp from Tesla Boulevard will be opened.

Finally, beginning at 7 p.m. Tuesday night, Oct. 26, northbound Alcoa Highway will open another lane, providing two lanes of traffic.

This revised traffic pattern is expected to be in place for the next few months.

The schedule for the new phase of ongoing work is contingent on favorable weather conditions, the news release stated.

Drivers should continue to be very careful in this area and watch out for workers, TDOT urged.
