Rock slide closes Franklin County roadway

Posted: Updated:

A Franklin County road is closed due to a rock slide Monday morning.

The incident was reported around 6:30 a.m. on State Route 16 at Keith Springs Mountain Road.

According to TDOT, the rockslide occurred in the same location where a $2.4 million TDOT rockslide mitigation project is currently underway. That enabled crews to get to the location where the slide happened quicker, and cleanup the debris.

The roadway is closed in both directions for the time being. Drivers are urged to avoid the area.

No further details were immediately released.
