The Tennessee Department of Transportation has begun preparing for a major construction project that will significantly impact drivers who travel on Interstate 24 in Nashville later this year.
Per a report by WKRN.com, the project involves the replacement of two bridges along I-24 that cross over Oldham Street and Spring Street in Davidson County. The plan also involves repairing the Silliman Evans Bridge.
To complete the repairs, TDOT plans to close sections of I-24 over the course of four weekends during the fall. Although the specific dates for the closures haven’t been decided, TDOT wants to warn drivers as early as possible that they will need to take detours if they travel through Nashville on I-24 in the fall.
