Thousands of people drive through it every day... crossing the Kentucky Tennessee border... but starting today... construction slowed things at the Cumberland Gap Tunnel.
Transportation officials say they're closing the Southbound side of the tunnel so they can repave it. They're directing North and Southbound traffic through the Northbound side. They're not allowing any wide loads to use the tunnel and the speed limit is down to 25. Officials say they do expect some delays during the repaving which is expected to take until about mid-August.
