Lane Closures on Briley Parkway This Weekend for Bridge Repairs

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) contract crews will close lanes on Briley Parkway northbound in Nashville this weekend in order to perform bridge repairs at McGavock Pike.

Friday, October 11th, 2013 beginning at 8:00 p.m. through Monday, October 14th, 2013 at 6:00 a.m., two lanes of Briley Parkway North at McGavock Pike will be closed.  Two lanes will remain open during the repairs.  During this time, crews will be repairing and painting bridge beams on the McGavock Pike bridge that crosses over Briley Parkway.

The work is weather dependent.  Should inclement weather or unforeseen circumstances prevent this work from occurring as scheduled, it will be rescheduled.

TDOT will use its overhead Dynamic Message Signs to direct motorists around the closure. Drivers are advised to be alert and follow the posted directions. Law enforcement officers will be on-site in the work zone to provide traffic control as the work is being completed. TDOT also asks drivers to use caution, reduce their speed and be alert to changing traffic conditions in work zones across the state.
