Long-term lane closures on I-440 in Nashville will begin March 1, 2019. The number of travel lanes will be reduced for the remainder of the project, limiting motorists to two lanes in each direction during the day and one lane in each direction at night. Additional lane closures may also be necessary on I-40, I-65, and I-24 as crews move to different parts of the project.
Heavy congestion and backups are expected throughout the 7.6-mile corridor as crews work to reconstruct the roadway. Motorists are urged to use caution and obey the reduced speed limit, or seek an alternate route. The project is expected to be finished in August 2020.
