No Construction Delays for July 4th Travelers in Tennessee
TDOT/Peg Broadcasting News Thursday June 29, 2017

Road construction won?t slow motorists across Tennessee over the July 4th holiday. The Tennessee Department of Transportation will suspend all construction-related lane closures on interstates and state routes beginning at 12:00 p.m. on Friday, June 30th through 6:00 a.m. on Wednesday, July 5th to provide maximum roadway capacity for holiday travelers.

Motorists will still encounter some long term lane closures on construction projects. While lane closure activity will be stopped, workers may be on site in construction zones and reduced speed limits in work zones will still be in effect. Drivers convicted of speeding through work zones where workers are present face a fine of $250 to $500, plus court fees and possible increased insurance premiums.

AAA projects a record breaking 44.2 million Americans will travel this Independence Day weekend, an increase of 1.3 million more than last year. Over 37 million will travel by automobile. In Tennessee, AAA estimates over 872,000 will travel during the holiday, with over 782,000 driving to their destinations.

From your desktop or mobile device, get the latest construction activity and live streaming SmartWay traffic cameras at www.TNSmartWay.com/Traffic. Travelers can also dial 511 from any land-line or cellular phone for travel information, or follow us on Twitter at www.twitter.com/TN511 for statewide travel. 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.

State Gives Rhea County 60 Days To Correct Jail Overcrowding
Peg Broadcasting News Thursday June 29, 2017

State officials have sent a letter to Rhea County Sheriff Mike Neal giving him only 60 days to correct overcrowding at the jail before the matter is taken to court. There are currently 217 inmates at the Rhea County Jail and only 87 beds. That means 130 prisoners are sleeping on the floor. The state has mandated that in 30 days Sheriff Neal must reduce the population in half and in 30 more days the jail must contain no more than 87 inmates. If he is unable to do that, it could cost Rhea County as much as $1 Million per year to pay for housing the inmates in other counties. Sheriff Neal says the county commission has known for years that Rhea County needs a new justice center but has failed to budget for a new, larger facility. In response, commissioners say they are looking for property to build a new jail but admit they lack the funds to build it.
