I-40 West lane to be closed in Tennessee

| September 22, 2011

One lane of Interstate 40 westbound at State Route 111 in Cookeville, Tenn., will be closed for about a week beginning Friday, Sept. 23, for a bridge repair, the Tennessee Department of Transportation said.

The project will require lane closures on I-40 West and SR-111 North from Sept. 23 at 6 p.m. CDT through Sept. 30 at 6 a.m. CDT. I-40 West will be shut at mile marker 288.6.

The work will repair a damaged bridge beam. Some traffic delays are expected, and at times could be lengthy, TDOT said.
