I-440 Repairs to close section of Nashville roadway

Partial Closure of Interstate 440 this Weekend for Concrete Repairs

tdot-logo-lgFor motorists planning to go to Nashville this weekend, a word of caution. Road closures will be in effect. TDOT has issued a traffic advisory regarding closure of a section of I-440 for concrete repair and rehabilitation.

According to TDOT’s Communications Office, Tennessee Department of Transportation crews will once again close a short section of Interstate 440 in Nashville this weekend as a major concrete rehabilitation project continues.  This weekend’s closure is part of the I-440 rehabilitation project which will last for several months to come.


Contract crews will close I-440 Westbound from the Interstate 65 junction to Interstate 40 on the west side of Nashville at 8:00 p.m. on Friday, September 11, 2009.  I-440 will reopen no later than 6:00 a.m. Monday, September 14.

Motorists will be advised of the traffic situation via TDOT message boards and broadcasts on the TDOT SmartWay Highway Advisory Radio. TDOT will use its many overhead message boards across the city to direct motorists around the closure. Several portable message boards will also be placed at strategic points on Nashville interstates to alert drivers of detour routes.  Most of the traffic will be diverted to Interstate 40 through downtown Nashville. In addition, information on the closures will be broadcast on the TDOT SmartWay Highway Advisory Radio station (1680 AM) and on 511.
