Construction Updates & Detours

Alternative Routes

The City of Chattanooga's Department of Transportation has created a detour plan to ensure the safest and most convenient rerouting. Throughout the project, CDOT has added a variety of additional detour signs in response to requests for more signage. CDOT recommends all travelers review the detour maps below and plan their commute accordingly.


Nov. 13, 2017 - Full closure of MLK Boulevard between Miller Plaza & Miller Park.

March 21, 2018 - MLK Boulevard reopens (closure expected to last 100 days).

Late March to Mid-April 2018 - Full closure of Georgia Avenue between MLK Boulevard & Patten Parkway.

Summer 2018 - New Miller Park Opens


The Chattanooga Department of Transportation (CDOT) has developed a detour plan to minimize the impact to traffic and businesses. See the maps below, which include multiple alternative routes. Posted detour signs will guide drivers around construction.
