KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Officials with the Tennessee Department of Transportation are asking people to stay off the roads as winter weather continues to fall across the region.
Mark Nagi with TDOT tweeted the request as Interstate 75 in Campbell County had been shut down several times Sunday afternoon as snow stacked up on the road and caused multiple traffic backups.
TDOT crews are working along I-75 to clear the route near the Tennessee Kentucky state lines.
