I-65 reduced to One Lane in Sumner County this Weekend for Bridge Repair

 

Nashville, TN — Tennessee Department of Transportation contract crews will reduce Interstate 65 North and South in Sumner County to one lane this weekend as repairs to the bridges that cross over US 31W (Springfield Highway) continue. I-65 at mile marker 98 will be reduced to one lane in each direction from Friday, June 18th, 2010 at 8:00pm until Monday, June 21st at 6:00am.

This weekend’s lane reduction is necessary for the application of a special sealant that will be placed on the newly repaired concrete bridge deck surface at mile marker 98, just north of the Davidson County line. Once the mixture is applied to each travel lane, it must dry for a period of several hours.

Previous closures for this project have resulted in lengthy delays, particularly on I-65 North. Motorists are advised to plan ahead and avoid the area if at all possible. Law enforcement officers will be on site in the work zone to provide traffic control as the work is being completed. TDOT also asks drivers to use caution, reduce their speed and be alert to changing traffic conditions in work zones across the state.
