With the I-440 reconstruction project in Nashville expected to be complete by late July, the I-440 bridge over I-65 will close the weekend of March 20-23 for a widening project, according to the Tennessee Department of Transportation.

Beginning 9 p.m. March 20 through 5 a.m. March 23, traffic near the I-440/I-65 interchange will be reduced to one lane and detoured away from the construction area. TDOT said drivers should be aware of the following detours in place:

• I-440 eastbound traffic will be detoured to I-65 southbound.

• I-440 westbound traffic will be detoured to I-65 northbound.

• I-65 northbound traffic will be detoured to I-440 eastbound.


• I-65 southbound traffic will be detoured to I-440 westbound.

• Franklin Road will be closed from Berry Road to Woodmont Boulevard.

This is the second of two planned weekend closures needed to widen the I-440 bridges over I-65.

As part of the $152.9 million reconstruction project, crews have been working 24 hours a day, six to seven days a week to replace deteriorating concrete pavement with asphalt and upgrade the entire roadway to three lanes in each direction.
