Nashville, Tenn. – As work on the new I-40/Donelson Pike Interchange continues, crews will be shutting down one lane of Donelson Pike in each direction at the taxiway overpass this weekend.

Only one lane of traffic will remain open in both directions beginning Friday, November 10, from 8 p.m. to 4 a.m. on Monday, November 13. This closure is to swap northbound traffic onto a new alignment.
