SUBJECT: I-26 Cable Maintenance Postponed
DATE: February 24, 2017
Due to unforeseen circumstances, the aforementioned Interstate 26 cable maintenance project has been postponed indefinitely. Normal traffic patterns will resume effective immediately.

As previously released:

On the morning of Friday, February 24, 2017 between the approximate hours of 8:00 AM and 10:00 AM there will be intermittent interruption of both eastbound and westbound Interstate 26 traffic at the West Stone Drive interchange in Kingsport as Charter Communications conducts cable maintenance, repair, and/or replacement in the area. This Interstate 26 traffic interruption will also effect the entrance ramps from West Stone Drive.

Area motorists are strongly encouraged to make themselves aware of this issue and consider planning an alternate route this morning and avoid the area altogether to prevent unnecessary traffic congestion and delays. Motorists already in the immediate area are asked to please slow down, increase situational awareness, exercise caution and patience, and obey all traffic signs, signals, and instructions.
