TDOT completes second slope stabilization project on U.S. 127




TDOT contract crews from GeoStabilization International have completed a slope stabilization project on a section of U.S. 127 (Signal Mountain Boulevard) in Hamilton County near log mile 16.05.

This is the second slope stabilization repair that TDOT has completed on U.S. 127 since July 2018. In addition to this site at log mile 16.05, crews completed repairs to the slope near log mile 15.97 in October.

Next spring, GSI will repair a third site near log mile 16.14 that was targeted by TDOT geotechnical engineers as one that would benefit from the soil nail repair method that was used at both of the other locations.

In the meantime, TDOT maintenance crews will place pavement at the third site to seal any cracks that could cause problems during the winter, and they will continue to regularly monitor the area for any changes.
