  • Fast Fix 8 is finished! On December 4, 2015, Commissioner John Schroer announced the completion of the project, seven months ahead of schedule.

    Originally built in 1968, the I-40 bridges over Herman Street, Clinton Street,  Jo Johnston Avenue and Charlotte Avenue in downtown Nashville need immediate attention. Fast Fix 8 is a $62 million bridge rehabilitation project to replace these four twin bridges using an innovative process called Accelerated Bridge Construction (ABC). ABC requires short-term, total road closures to allow crews the space to do their jobs and the freedom to work around the clock. The closures will also allow construction to be finished in months instead of years. For Fast Fix 8, a portion of the downtown loop will be closed to all traffic for 13 weekends between July 2015 and June 2016. During the scheduled closures, I-40 will be closed from the I-40/I-65 split west of downtown to the I-40/I-65 split south of downtown. The interstate detour will remain the same for all 13 weekends.  Detours on local streets will be dependent upon specific bridge work. Go to the Details section of this project for local detour maps. Bicycle and pedestrian traffic should follow directional signage near the work zone. Detour Map (pdf Document)
