Nashville, TN – Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) contract crews will temporarily close I-65 in Nashville at the Wedgewood Avenue bridge to make repairs this weekend.
This work was originally scheduled for October 23rd-26th but was postponed due to inclement weather.
The closure information is as follows:
Friday, October 30th at 8:00pm through Monday, November 2nd at 5:00am, TDOT contract crews will close I-65 at the Wedgewood Avenue bridge.
- Northbound traffic will be routed on I-440 to I-40/I-24 (downtown interstate loop).
- Southbound traffic will be routed on I-40/I-24 (downtown interstate loop) to I-440.
- Local traffic will be able to access I-65 via the Wedgewood on-ramps.
- The I-40 eastbound on-ramp on Demonbreun Street will be closed.
TDOT will use its overhead Dynamic Message Signs to direct motorists around the closure. Drivers are advised to be alert and follow the posted directions. Law enforcement officers will be on site in the work zone to provide traffic control as the work is being completed.
Additional nightly closures on Wedgewood Avenue at the I-65 bridge will be needed following the weekend closure.
