Crash alert: Portion of I-65 in Nashville to be closed for bridge repairs

by Ponce Law | October 23rd, 2020

NASHVILLE, TN – Drivers are being advised of bridge repair work that will affect some traffic in Nashville this weekend, WSMV reported.

Crews will be making repairs at the Interstate 65 Wedgewood Avenue interchange, prompting the closure of I-65 in that area.  The shutdown will start at 8 p.m. Friday and continue until 5 a.m. Monday. The work is part of a $2.4 million bridge repair project scheduled to be completed next spring.

The Tennessee Department of Transportation said northbound traffic on I-65 will be routed on I-440 to the I-40/I-24 interstate loop. Traffic headed south will be routed on I-40/I-24 to I-440. Local traffic will be able to access I-65 via the Wedgewood Avenue on-ramps.

Along with this weekend’s bridge work, a ramp safety project in the area is slated to begin in early 2021.

Despite ongoing efforts to improve highway safety, drivers still face the threat of car accidents that can leave them facing medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
