As of Monday, drivers in Chattanooga are navigating a new traffic shift on Highway 27, the latest in the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT)'s long-term construction of that major highway.

TDOT says traffic on eastbound MLK Boulevard must now get in the right lane and use the new loop ramp to access U.S. 27 North.

They will have the same yield situation that the southbound MLK Blvd. and 4th St. ramps currently have.

TDOT says the U.S. 27 North on/off ramps to/from 4th St. will not be affected by this change. On the mainline of U.S. 27 North, traffic will transition from the new lanes back to the existing lanes immediately north of the MLK Blvd. overpass.

TDOT wants you to remember that the speed limit on U.S. 27 in the construction zone is 45 mph.
