Road Closure Scheduled for Saturn Parkway Ramp in Maury County
SPRING HILL, Tenn. – Tennessee Department of Transportation contract crews will close the ramp from Saturn Parkway West to US 31 South in Maury County for repairs. The work is scheduled as follows:
- Friday, September 26 at 8:00 p.m. through Monday, September 29 at 6:00 a.m.
During the closure, all traffic will be detoured. Motorists traveling Saturn Parkway West (State Route 396) will be diverted to the US 31 North ramp. Larger, commercial trucks will be allowed to continue on Saturn Parkway and make a U-turn at the GM plant.
Temporary lane closures are also possible on US 31 South near the ramp work. Traffic headed eastbound on Saturn Parkway will not be affected.
This operation could create traffic delays. Message boards are already in place to alert motorists to the closure. Tennessee Highway Patrol will be on-site to assist with traffic. Motorists are advised to plan ahead.
The scheduled closure is weather dependent. Should inclement weather or unforeseen circumstances prevent work from occurring as scheduled, it will be rescheduled.
The work is part of a $480,065 repair project, which consists of removal and replacement of all concrete approach slabs at the ends of the ramp. Earlier this year, old concrete was removed and replaced on the ramp as part of a separate project. The current project is expected to be completed by the end of October. The end result of all work will be safer, smoother lanes of travel.
