Bridge Repair Project Requires Traffic Shift on Lebanon Road in Nashville
 
Nashville, TN – Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) contract crews are preparing to shift traffic on Lebanon Road near Fesslers Lane. The traffic shift is part of a project to repair the Lebanon Road Bridge that crosses over Browns Creek.
 
  • Friday April 27th at 9:00 a.m. through Tuesday May 1st at 3:00 p.m., there will be alternating lane closures on Lebanon Road in order to stripe the road and relocate lane use signals. One lane will remain open in each direction. 
  • Wednesday May 2nd at 7:00p.m. through Thursday May 3rd at 6:00 a.m., there will be alternating lane closures on Lebanon Rd. in order to stripe the road and shift traffic. One lane will remain open in each direction.
The bridge project will require lane reductions on Lebanon Road. However, there will be two inbound lanes open and one outbound lane open during the morning rush hour. There will be two outbound lanes open and one inbound lane open during the evening rush hour.  At all other times, Lebanon Road will be reduced to one lane in each direction. 
 
This work is part of a $1.3 million project that will replace the aging and deteriorated bridge deck over Browns Creek. The entire project is expected to be complete by Spring 2013.  
 
TDOT will use portable message boards to alert motorists of the lane closures and traffic shift. Motorists are advised to plan ahead and expect delays. TDOT asks drivers to use caution, reduce their speed and be alert to changing traffic conditions in work zones across the state.
