The Tennessee Department of Transportation is currently working on paving a portion of Highway 55. The project aims to improve a four-mile portion of the highway, beginning at the Coffee County Central High School, extending four miles toward Tullahoma, according to Chris Moffitt, operations technician supervisor with TDOT.
“TDOT workers are resurfacing the micro surface,” Moffitt said.
“That’s the type of treatment it is,” he said. “It’s 4.1 miles. The actual location starts at log mile 7.35 and goes to log mile 11.43.
“We will finish paving the lanes this afternoon (May 14), and we will have to come back and do the final striping and reflective markers,” he said.
Crews will return to complete the project in about a week, according to Moffitt.
“It should be possibly next week, as far as putting the reflective markers in and the thermoplastic paint,” he said. “And that will be a mobile operation, so it shouldn’t affect traffic too bad. The bulk of the work to have everything repaved will be done today (May 14).”
