Rolling Roadblocks Scheduled for I-65 South in Williamson County
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Tennessee Department of Transportation contract crews will conduct rolling roadblocks along I-65 South in Williamson County this weekend to set steel beams for the Goose Creek Bypass/Peytonsville Road interchange. The rolling roadblocks will cover a 9 mile stretch from Concord Road (Exit 71) to Goose Creek Bypass/Peytonsville Road (Exit 61). The work is scheduled as follows:
• Sunday, April 27, 2014, 5:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
During the rolling roadblocks, all lanes of southbound traffic will be slowed temporarily to allow workers to safely lift the steel bridge beams over the interstate. This operation will likely create lengthy delays for traffic on I-65 South. Motorists are advised to plan ahead and utilize alternate routes if possible.
Message boards will be placed in the area to alert motorists to the roadblocks. The Tennessee Highway Patrol and TDOT HELP trucks will also be on-site to assist with traffic. TDOT asks drivers to use caution, reduce speed and be alert to changing traffic conditions in work zones across the state.
The scheduled roadblocks are weather dependent. Should inclement weather or unforeseen circumstances prevent work from occurring as scheduled, it will be rescheduled.
The work is part of a $46.2 million project to widen I-65 between SR 840 and SR 248, and to modify the interchange and widen the roadway on SR 248 in Williamson County.
