Weather postpones I-540 repairs

Posted June 20, 2008 1:30 p.m. EDT

— The state Department of Transportation has canceled work scheduled for this weekend on westbound Interstate 540 between U.S. Highway 64 Business and Buffaloe Road because rain is in the forecast.

The DOT closed lanes on I-540 last weekend so the highway contractor could correct problems on two isolated areas of the roadway that were detected before it opened in January 2007.

The work is expected to last two more weekends.
