Tennessee Department of Transportation announces High-Impact Interstate Lane Closures this Weekend

Drivers should plan ahead for construction on I-40 and I-24

Tennessee Department of Transportation - TDOTNashville, TN – It’s paving season in Tennessee, and this weekend there are two major interstate projects in the mid-state area that will have a significant impact on weekend travel.

Drivers should take note of the following scheduled construction activity on Interstate 24 in the Clarksville area and Interstate 40 in the Lebanon area.

Lane Closure

On Friday, May 20th, starting at 8:00pm until Monday, May 23rd, 3:00am, Interstate 24 will be closed in both directions at SR 237 (Exit 8/Rossview Road) in Montgomery County for milling and paving.

Traffic will be detoured using the SR 237 on and off ramps. SR 237 will also be closed in the intersection area during this time to facilitate the interstate detour.

On Sunday, May 22nd, from 6:00am until 6:00pm, Interstate 40 eastbound at mile marker 230 will be reduced to one lane at times for milling and paving operations.

The previously scheduled work on I-65 northbound at the Trinity Lane bridge north of downtown Nashville has been postponed this weekend and will resume weekend lane closures after Memorial Day.
