WKYT is getting a better idea of just what engineers are facing as they work to repair a landslide that has closed part of Interstate 75.
The ground under them keeps sliding more than 180 feet down the hillside as they try to make repairs near Jellico, Tennessee, just south of the Kentucky state line.
The 50-foot bars are buried under the asphalt to create a wall to stop any further erosion. Next, crews will move to the bottom bedrock and build it up with rock.
Right now, all southbound lanes are scheduled to be closed until at least Monday. The project, though, is expected to last until September.
