The Tennessee Department of Transportation has a closure set for the I-24 section of the downtown Nashville, Tenn., interstate loop from the I-40 at the Silliman Evans bridge to I-65 on the Northeast side of the downtown area. The closure begins at 9 p.m. tonight, Friday, August 2, and runs through Monday, August 5, at 5 a.m.

Traffic will be detoured to I-40 and I-65. Local traffic in East Nashville will be able to access local routes to cross the Cumberland River, including Shelby Avenue, Main Street, Woodland Street, and Spring Street.

The I-24 closure is being undertaken to complete part of a $1.5 million bridge repair project that includes joint replacement and repairs at the bridges over Main Street and Woodland Street, as well as the Silliman Evans bridge.

TDOT is prepping for a second weekend closure that has yet to be scheduled, but the agency estimates early Fall for a timeframe.
