According to tweets from Mark Nagi, Community Relations Officer with the Tennessee Department of Transportation:

On Saturday, June 13, Hunt Road will be closed at the Alcoa Highway overpass.

Motorists traveling in Blount County should be aware of the upcoming road closure that will have an affect on traffic in Alcoa over the next six months.

The existing Hunt Road bridge will be demolished and replaced by a new Hunt Road bridge over Alcoa Highway.

This roadway is expected to re-open to traffic in December 2020.

Signage is in place alerting motorists of the upcoming closure.

This detour map shows the new traffic pattern following those Hunt Road bridge demolition activities, and will be in place until December 2020.

The existing bridge will be demolished during nighttime operations June 14-18.

Traffic will be detoured around the bridge demolition using existing interchange ramps. That detour will only be in place for the demolition activities.

The TN Dept of Transportation contractor will be closing the Hunt Road Bridge to traffic on the morning of Saturday, June 13, 2020. This closure will remain in place through Winter 2020 and will allow the contractor to construct the new Hunt Road bridge. During this closure, traffic will be detoured along State Routes.
