Tennessee Department of Transportation officials report a nightly closure over this weekend of all lanes both eastbound and westbound along the “South Loop” of downtown Nashville. The closure, as repairs are made to downtown bridges, will extend from the I-40/I-65 split west of downtown to the I-40/I-65 split south of downtown.

Detours around the closures on four area interstate highways will be in place, TDOT says. Closures will be in place from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings.

The closures add to ongoing projects around the city, including alternating lane closures in place in both directions through the end of the week on I-40 between Herman Street and Charlotte Avenue. Also, a widening project ongoing through the end of the month on I-65 north of town has seen no small amount of backed-up traffic in recent months as a result.
