Last weekend closure of I-24 in Nashville coming

Print | Front Page | Email this story

NASHVILLE (AP) — After a summer of weekend closures, construction on a section of Interstate 24 on Nashville's east side should wrap up this weekend.

The Tennessee Department of Transportation said a three-mile section of I-24 between I-40 and I-65 will be shut down at 9 p.m. on Friday and will be reopened by 5 a.m. Monday. That stretch has been closed for most weekends during the summer for major rehabilitation of two bridges over city streets.

Then traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction overnights Monday through Wednesday to install reflectors that won't interfere with snowplowing and to score the road shoulders.

Finishing the work depends on weather, but no rain is in the forecast.
