The Tennessee Department of Transportation crews are working everyday repairing potholes along interstates and state routes caused by last month’s record winter storm which dumped more snow in 24 hours than we normally see in an entire winter.

The statewide effort is using all available resources, including contract crews, to repair the damaged areas as quickly as possible. Tennessee Department of Transportation has patched 50% more in January 2024 than in the last two years.

As weather permits, the Tennessee Department of Transportation will continue repairing the roads over the coming days and weeks.

More permanent repairs will be made in spring and early summer when asphalt plants are regularly producing hot mix. Full-scale paving may be necessary in some locations.
