Mark Nagi, in community relations for Tennessee Department of Transportation’s region 1, tweeted the above photo the morning of January 15, stressing that I-75 North in Tennessee is not affected. I-75 South is closed at milemarker 84 in Loudon County.

Detour routes for Southbound haulers on I-75, he added, are in place: take I-40 West from I-75 South/I-40 West split in Knoxville to Exit 364 to U.S. 321 back to I-75 South.
