NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Tennessee Department of Transportation will be closing the ramp from Murfreesboro Pike onto I-40 East from Friday to Monday while concrete repairs are made.
The work was originally planned to take place last month but had to be rescheduled due to wet weather.
Crews with Vulcan Materials Company will be repairing the concrete on the ramp in two separate closures. The first is Thursday, September 8, from 8 p.m. – 5 a.m. and the second begins Friday, September 9, at 8 p.m. and lasts until Monday, September 12, at 5 a.m.
The work is part of a resurfacing and bridge repair project of I-24 between the I-440 and I-40 split.
Motorists are advised to plan for extra travel time, and slow down while in a work zone.
