Tennessee Department of Transportation Update on Rossview Road/Exit 8 Construction

 

Tennessee Department of TransportationNashville, TN – Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) plans to widen SR 237 (Rossview Road) to a five lane facility, from west of Interstate 24 to east of International Boulevard, near Clarksville, Montgomery County.

This change calls for the removal and replacement of the existing bridges over the interstate. Improvements will also be made to the I-24 on – and off – ramps and curb and gutter sections along SR 237. Traffic signals at International Boulevard and the interstate ramps are included in construction.

The work is part of a State Industrial Access (SIA) project serving Hankook Tire.

The widening improvements will provide addition turning and storage space for vehicles entering or leaving the proposed development site. The project was let to construction in October 2014.

The $12.9 million project is expected to be completed May 2016. In preparation for construction, portable barrier rail has been installed along the inside and outside shoulders of I-24, in both directions, to provide workers a safe work zone. Motorists can expect lane closures, lane shifts, and slow moving traffic during construction.

Workers and equipment will be on-site seven days a week, with nighttime and weekend lane closures possible. Drivers are urged to use caution, reduce speed, and be alert to changing traffic conditions in this area.

The current Park & Ride facility located within the project limits will remain in use during construction. A new location is currently being studied and will be developed prior to the end of the project.
