CAMPBELL COUNTY, Tenn. (WKYT) - After weeks of being shut down, the Department of Transportation has finally reopened one lane of I-75 North in Campbell County, Tennessee.

The lane was reopened just before 10am Thursday morning.

The roadway has been closed since February 26th due to a rockslide that occurred at Mile Marker 142.

The southbound lanes were shut down as well, but reopened on March 9th.

One lane will remain closed on I-75 North.

The transportation department is urging drivers to use caution in the area because work is still being done in that area. Crews are removing slide debris, stabilizing the existing slope, and repairing the interstate.

The entire repair project is scheduled to be complete on or before April 15th.
