SR 157 Road Closure Extended to June 6
WHAT: State Route 157 will remain closed until June 6 near the Georgia/Tennessee state line on Lookout Mountain. Crews are stabilizing the slope near the route and repairing a section of the road. The road closure was extended due to supply issues and additional work needed on the project.
WHERE: SR 157 will be closed about half a mile from the state line
DETOUR: Motorists traveling north will take SR 157 to SR 136 and head east to SR 193, which they will then take into Tennessee. Southbound traffic from Tennessee will take SR 193 into Georgia then turn west onto SR 136 before taking SR 157 north.
- Advisory: Motorists are advised to expect delays, exercise caution, and reduce their speed while traveling through work zones. Before heading out, get real-time information on work status and traffic conditions. Call 511, visit 511ga.org, or download the Georgia 511 app. Our maintenance team members who repair roads and bridges and our project teams who oversee construction projects are continuing their essential work, while following sanitary work practices prescribed by health agencies to protect themselves and the public from the coronavirus, as are most state DOTs in the U.S.
