Weekend Lane Closures on Interstate 40 in West Nashville

Tennessee Department of TransportationNashville, TN – Work continues to progress on the state’s second largest Recovery Act funded project on I-40 at White Bridge Road in west Nashville.  This weekend, crews will close lanes on Interstate 40 in both directions near White Bridge Road to begin work on concrete foundations for new overhead sign structures.  Also this weekend, lanes will be closed on the I-40 westbound ramp to White Bridge Road as crews continue pouring the new concrete bridge deck.  The closures are as follows:

  • Friday July 16th, 9:00pm through Monday July 19th, 5:00am – the left lane of I-40 eastbound and westbound will be closed in order to remove the median barrier rail and install a new overhead sign footing.
  • Saturday July 17th and Sunday July 18th, 10:00pm through 5:00am (each night) – I-40 will be reduced to one lane as crews continue working to remove median barrier rail and install a new overhead sign footing.
  • Saturday July 17th, 12:00 Midnight through Sunday July 18th, 12:00 Noon – The left lane of the I-40 westbound off ramp at White Bridge Rd. will be closed in order to pour the new bridge deck.

The lane closures are part of the Interstate 40/White Bridge Road Interchange Modification Project, which will help improve traffic flow for motorists traveling eastbound I-40 to Briley Parkway and from Briley Parkway to westbound I-40.  The $32 million project is funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and is scheduled to be complete in August 2011.
