NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Tennessee Department of Transportation contract crews completed the fourth and final Interstate 24 weekend closure needed to replace the bridges over Oldham Street and Spring Street, as well as make other repairs along the corridor in downtown Nashville.

Over the weekend, crews replaced the eastbound half of the I-24 Oldham Street bridge, and milled, resealed, and paved a portion of the Silliman Evans Bridge.

In 2016, the Tennessee Department of Transportation lost three workers in the line of duty. All three were struck by passing motorists. Those tragedies bring the total number of TDOT lives lost to 112. We don’t want to lose another member of our TDOT family. We’re asking you to WORK WITH US.
