Tennessee Department of Transportation announces I-40 Weekend Lane Closures in Cheatham County for Bridge Repair

 

Tennessee Department of Transportation - TDOTKingston Springs, TN – Starting June 14th, 2019 a Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) bridge repair project on the Beech Hill Road overpass at mile marker 189 will cause weekend delays on I-40. Drivers are asked to plan ahead.

The work will require lane closures for two weekends.

Lane Closure

 

This tentative schedule is as follows. 

  • Friday, June 14th, 8:00pm – Monday, June 17th, 5:00am – There will be alternating lane closures on I-40 in both directions at mile marker 189 in Cheatham County (between the Pegram and Kingston Springs exits).
  • Friday, June 21st, 8:00pm – Monday, June 24th, 5:00am – There will be alternating lane closures on I-40 in both directions at mile marker 189 in Cheatham County (between the Pegram and Kingston Springs exits).

The weekend work is dependent on weather and project progress. June 28th-July 1st will be the alternate weekend if needed.

The contractor plans to begin lane closures in the westbound direction for both weekends. Once that work is completed, the westbound lane closure will be opened and crews will close an eastbound lane. The Tennessee Department of Transportation estimates the switch to eastbound will begin late in the day on Saturday, but drivers are encouraged to check www.TNSmartWay.com/Traffic for real-time updates.

There will also be overnight lane closures between 8:00pm-5:00am for the repairs starting at the end of this month.

The repair project calls for heat straightening of the steel beams and structural steel repairs. The contract amount is $324,307.
