NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Traffic on the Interstate 440 corridor south of Nashville could be impacted this weekend due to ongoing construction projects that will force the closure of access ramps between I-65 and I-24.
The Tennessee Department of Transportation has announced that several I-440 ramps will be closed Saturday when the Commodores host Kentucky at 2:30 p.m. Saturday.
Here is a list of ramp closures this weekend:
• I-65 in both directions to I-440 eastbound
• I-440 eastbound to I-65 south
• I-440 westbound to Nolensville Pike
• I-24 eastbound to I-440 westbound (closed 9 p.m. Friday through 5 a.m. Sunday)
The highway department does not expect thru-traffic patterns on I-65 and I-24 to be impacted this weekend.
For Nashville-area fans residing south of I-440, all other surface roads over the interstate will be open, including West End Avenue (Hwy. 70), Woodlawn Drive, 21st Avenue South (Hwy. 431), Belmont Boulevard, Granny White Pike/12th Avenue South), Franklin Road, Lealand Lane, Bransford Avenue and Nolensville Road (Hwy. 41A).
The rest of Nashville’s interstate road system, including I-65 and I-24 into the city from the north and I-40 from Memphis and Knoxville, will be free of construction during the weekend.
From a desktop or mobile device, the latest construction information, alternative routes and live streaming SmartWay traffic cameras are available at TNSmartWay.com/Traffic. Travelers can also dial 511 from any land-line or cellular phone for travel information.
The ongoing renovation of I-440 is part of a $152.9 million project that extends approximately 7.6 miles from I-40 to I-24 in Davidson County. It includes removing substandard pavement and providing three lanes of travel in each direction.
The estimated completion date of the I-440 improvement is August 2020.
