Two Projects Require Lane Closures on Interstate 24 in Davidson County

Tennessee Department of TransportationNashville, TN – Two separate road construction projects will require lane closures on Interstate 24 in Nashville over the coming days.

Tennessee Department of Transportation contract crews will close one lane on the ramp to Interstate 24 West (mile marker 43 – toward Clarksville), located north of Downtown Nashville this weekend in order to perform concrete repairs. The ramp is located at the I-24/I-65 split, just north of Trinity Lane. The closure will begin Friday, October 29th, 2010 at 8:00 p.m. The ramp lane will reopen no later than Monday, November 1st at 6:00am. One lane on the ramp will remain open during this period.

Contract crews will also be conducting nighttime lane closures on I-24 East and West, from just north of Spring Street to just north of the I-40 split as part of a resurfacing project. The closures will take place nightly, from 8:00pm to 6:00am.

Both locations are heavily traveled areas of I-24. TDOT is encouraging motorists to consider alternate routes during the lane closure periods. Overhead and portable message boards will be used to alert motorists of the lane closures. Law enforcement officers will also be present to provide traffic control in the work zones. TDOT also asks drivers to use caution, reduce their speed and be alert to changing traffic conditions in work zones across the state.
