Drivers should expect delays and seek alternate routes
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Tennessee Department of Transportation contract crews will work this weekend on repairs on the I-65 bridges that cross over Trinity Lane north of downtown Nashville.
This weekend’s lane closures are as follows.
· Friday, June 16, 8:00 pm – Monday, June 19, 5:00 am. – I-65 southbound will be reduced to two lanes at MM 87 for bridge joint repair. Two lanes will remain open at all times.
Drivers on I-24 eastbound and I-65 southbound north of Nashville are advised to expect delays and seek an alternate route.
There will be a necessary curing time for the new concrete to harden before the lanes are opened to traffic. During this time, there is a possibility that no workers will be present, but the lanes will still be closed. As soon as the concrete reaches the appropriate strength, the lanes will be opened to traffic.
Crews will need two weekends to complete the repair work. Weather permitting, the second weekend will be Friday, June 23-Monday, June 26. An advisory will be issued once the work is confirmed.
