NASHVILLE – Tennessee Department of Transportation contract crews will completely close I-440 eastbound from the I-65 junction to the I-24 junction, including the on and off ramps at Nolensville Road, in order to perform concrete repairs this weekend. I-440 Eastbound between I-65 and I-24 will be closed starting Friday, June 28th at 8 p.m. through Monday, July 1st at 5:00 a.m.
The repairs are part of a $9.7 million project to widen this stretch of I-440 Eastbound. A total of ten weekend closures will allow the concrete work to be completed on an accelerated schedule. Otherwise, repairs would require lane closures over a period of several months. During the weekend closures, crews will jackhammer and remove large sections of deteriorating concrete as much as a foot deep. Once the new concrete is poured, it will have to harden for several hours. The travel lanes will then be re-striped before reopening to traffic.
