The Tennessee Department of Transportation will be setting up concrete traffic barriers on Hwy. 70 E. near Godsey Rd. until 7 p.m. today and possibly tomorrow. 

The barriers are needed for an emergency slope stabilization project. Once the barriers are installed, the area will be reduced to one lane and controlled by a temporary traffic signal. 

Twin K. Construction is the contractor for the $3.9 million project, with estimated completion in November.
