I-24 Bridge Repair Project Nearly Complete

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn.- Nashville drivers and East Nashville business owners will so breath a sign of relief as the weekend construction project on Interstate 24 near downtown comes to an end.

The I-24 bridge construction began in April to repair the Silliman Evans Bridge on Interstate 24, with a total of 13 weekend closures over the spring and summer of 2012. The project will be completed by August 31.

During the weekend closures traffic on Interstate 24 was closed in both directions from the I-24/I-65 split north of downtown to the I-24/I-40 split east of downtown. Traffic detoured through the west loop around downtown Nashville.

The Interstate closure begins at 9 p.m. on Friday, and will reopen at 5 a.m. Monday.
