Auto emissions testing centers in Hamilton County will close Nov. 22-23 for the Thanksgiving holiday.
Two stations, 5206 Austin Road and 720 Eastgate Loop, will open for testing Nov. 24 from 7 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. for those who need it.
“Planning ahead keeps waiting to a minimum,” Prentiss Taylor, program manager for the Tennessee Vehicle Inspection Program, said in a prepared statement. “It's a good idea to take vehicles midweek, when testing volume is usually light, and to avoid testing in the final days of the month.”
Normal hours of operation for the testing centers located in Hamilton County are:
—5206 Austin Road in Hixson and 720 Eastgate Loop in Chattanooga are open Tuesday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. with Saturday hours from 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
—1620 Riverfront Parkway and 7460 Bonnyshire Drive, both in Chattanooga, are open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
