View looking south toward Buckner Gap (seen to the left of the
photo). Relocated US 23 is to the left, the Bear Branch interchange is
in the center of the photo. The interchange is a stretched out diamond
passing over Bear Branch Road, which had to be relocated as well. The grade
coming down from Buckner Gap is 6%, with an uphill grade to the TN State
Line from the interchange toward the bottom of the photo.
