Before the redesign and reconstruction begins on Interstate 440 in Nashville, crews will first work to patch potholes along the roadway.
Tennessee Department of Transportation officials announced Monday that asphalt patching will begin in mid-April before the more extensive project begins.
This winter’s cold temperatures and heavy rains took a toll on the already deteriorating roadway. Beginning the week of April 16, crews will be placing asphalt patches of 500 feet or longer on the roughest areas of the corridor, TDOT said.
The work will be done at night to reduce impacts on traffic.
The I-440 design and reconstruction is projected to take up to three years to complete. Click here for more information.
