I-40 near the Silliman Evans Bridge in Nashville Reduced to One Lane This Weekend for Bridge Repair
Nashville, Tenn. – Tennessee Department of Transportation contract crews will close the right lane of Interstate 40 westbound near downtown this weekend in order to make repairs to the Silliman Evans Bridge.
I-40 West at the I-24 split near mile marker 211 will be reduced to one lane beginning Friday, April 5th at 8:00 p.m. The lanes will reopen no later than Monday, April 8th at 6:00 a.m. The lane closures are located near the Fesslers Lane and 2nd/4th Avenue Exits.
During this weekend’s lane closures, workers will sandblast and prime the Silliman Evans Bridge. Then over the next five weekends, crews will continue working to prepare the bridge to be painted. The bridge repairs are being completed as part of an $11.3 million bridge repair and painting project. The entire project is expected to be complete in May 2013.
TDOT will use overhead and portable message boards to alert motorists of the lane closures. Motorists are advised to plan ahead and expect delays. Law enforcement officers will be on site in the work zone to provide traffic control as the work is being completed. TDOT also asks drivers to use caution, reduce their speed and be alert to changing traffic conditions in work zones across the state.

What a great radio station for me to be a part of for nearly 14 years! The Rock was just over one year old when I did my first show on Saturday, May 22nd, 1999. Prior to coming on board, I spent many years working for a heritage rock station in town that abruptly turned its back on their listeners and changed formats. Thank God 1059 The Rock brought Classic Rock back to Nashville radio. It is my honor and privilege to be associated with this awesome radio station as we celebrate 15 years rocking Nashville! Thank you, our loyal Rock listeners for making all of this possible. Jimmy the K
