According to the Tennessee Department of Transportation's website, Interstate 26 at the Gray exit will be shutdown by rolling roadblocks between 1 and 3 p.m. to allow workers to blast for the in progress upgrades to the on and off ramps.

Last week, the construction resulted in significant backups on both sides of the Interstate and brought in reports of a rockslide.

Reports from the road are also telling us Highway 36, the other route between Johnson City and Kingsport is congested.
