Lane Closures on I-65 in Williamson County This Weekend for Bridge Repairs

 

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) contract crews will close lanes on I-65 South in Williamson County this weekend in order to perform repairs to the State Route 840 bridge that crosses over the interstate.

Saturday, February 22, 2014 beginning at midnight through Sunday, February 23rd, 2014 at 8:00 p.m., two lanes of I-65 southbound at State Route 840 (mile marker 59) will be closed. One lane will remain open.

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 portable message boards to alert motorists of the lane closure. TDOT HELP trucks and law enforcement officers will be working in the area to assist with traffic.  Drivers should be prepared for slow traffic. TDOT asks drivers to use caution, reduce their speed and be alert to changing traffic conditions in work zones across the state.
