Wilson Pike will see closures at the CSX tunnels on Sunday and Monday, Sept. 13 and 14 as the Tennessee Department of Transportation installs a signal conduit.

The closures will happen each night from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. and a detour will be in place. 

TDOT advises drivers to use caution and to expect delays when traveling in the area.

As previously reported, in 2016 TODT completed a traffic study on several locations in the county, including the Wilson Pike tunnels where they explored the idea of installing traffic signals.
