Battery Lane Closes Monday For Bridge Replacement

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Drivers could run into some big challenges Monday in the Oak Hill/Green Hills area.

TDOT and Metro Public Works began the second phase of construction to replace the Battery Lane Bridge over the West Fork Brown Creek. TDOT will manage construction of this second phase of the project, which will include the actual replacement of the bridge.

The work will require a total closure of both the eastbound and westbound lanes of Battery Lane between Lealand Lane and Granny White Pike. The road will be closed for approximately 90 days beginning Monday. 

Detours will be in place:

East to West Detour
 
Coming from Franklin Rd (U.S. 31/ SR 6)
From Battery Lane turn Right onto Lealand Lane
From Lealand Lane turn Left onto Glendale Lane
From Glendale Lane turn Left onto Granny White Pike
From Granny White Pike turn Right back onto Battery Lane/Harding Place

West to East Detour
 
Coming from Hillsboro Rd. (U.S. 431/ SR 106)
From Harding Place turn Right onto Granny White Pike
From Granny White Pike turn Left onto Tyne Boulevard
From Tyne Boulevard turn Left onto Lealand Lane
From Lealand Lane turn Right back onto Battery Lane/Harding Place
 
Message Boards and Metro Police officers will be in place to help provide assistance with the detour routes. Local two-way traffic will be allowed to access their homes within the construction limits on Battery Lane.

Around 16,000 vehicles use the stretch of Battery Lane each day. The existing bridge was built in 1956.
