Peg Broadcasting News Friday September 9, 2016

The Tennessee Department of Transportation will send HELP to the Tri-Cities this weekend in an effort to assist with heavy traffic expected on Tennessee roadways as a result of the Battle at Bristol college football game at Bristol Motors Speedway on Saturday.

Very high traffic volumes are expected to pass through East Tennessee over the weekend, affecting interstate highways, state routes, and local roads near the game venue. TDOT will provide four HELP trucks to patrol the area and assist motorists on I-26 and I-81 from 12 noon Saturday through early Sunday morning.

TDOT HELP trucks are equipped with four-wheel drive, push bumpers, top-mounted arrow boards, emergency work lights, air compressors and other tools. Operators can perform a variety of functions, from clearing a stalled car off the roadway to changing a flat tire.

For post-game traffic, TDOT will close one lane of I-40 West at the I-40/I-81 interchange. This will provide traffic leaving the game on I-81 South and traveling toward Knoxville two lanes of easy access to I-40 West. Message boards will be used to advise motorists of these changes.

Any motorists not attending the event are asked to plan ahead and avoid the area if possible.
