TDOT contractor completes first phase of I-75 at I-24 interchange modification

Tennessee Department of Transportation contract crews have completed the phase one project of the I-75/I-24 interchange modification in Hamilton County on time and within budget, TDOT reports.

C.W. Matthews Contracting was the contractor for the $132.6 million project that began construction in June 2019 and was completed in August.

The project contained 11 bridges, 17 retaining walls, one noise wall, several grading, drainage, Intelligent Transportation System and lighting improvements and paving.

The project was constructed using an alternative delivery method known as design-build, which combines all or some portions of the design and construction phases of a project – including design, right of way acquisition, regulatory permit approvals, utility relocation and construction – into a single contract.

The phase two project of the I-75/I-24 interchange modification has been funded for fiscal year 2022-2023 and is expected to be under contract by the end of 2022, meaning drivers should see construction underway on phase two in the spring of 2023.

Phase two will also be constructed using the design-build alternative delivery method.
