I-24 Road construction 2012
« on: April 12, 2012, 11:12:33 PM »
I-24 Closures near downtown Nashville during festival.  Starts april 20 ends? Roads will not be closed Memorial day weekend.

The interstate will be shut down beginning Fridays at 9:00 p.m. and reopened no later than Mondays at 5:00 a.m.

I-24 West -- closed from Mile Marker 47.8 to Mile Marker 50.2
I-24 East --- closed from Mile Marker 46.8 to Mile Marker 48.0
The festival is off I-24 exit 78

During the 13 weekends, Interstate 24 will be closed in both directions from the I-24/I-65 split north of downtown to the I-24/I-40 split east of downtown. The closures are necessary due to the construction technique, as well as the safety of the workers and the motoring public. At certain times during construction, there will be openings in the bridge deck when the old deck is removed until the new panels are placed. These openings could lead to dangerous conditions and distractions if drivers were able to travel through the area.
Interstate traffic will detour around the work zone by taking the west loop around downtown Nashville. Motorists traveling westbound on I-24 or northbound on I-65 will take I-40 West to I-65 North, then back to I-24. Motorists traveling eastbound on I-24 or southbound on I-65 will take I-65 South to I-40 East, then back to I-24.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A three-mile section of Interstate 24 will be closed this weekend near downtown Nashville to allow bridge work to be done.

I-24 eastbound and westbound will be closed from the I-24/I-65 split north of downtown to the I-24/I-40 split east of downtown beginning at 9 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Monday. Detour signs will be posted, directing motorists to take the west loop around downtown. Overhead message signs will direct motorists around the closure.

Updat on road work near Festival exit. Between mile markers 70-74. New signage posted LAne will be close each night from 8pm-5am. So this shouldn't affect traffic during festival hours.

They are working on the left hand lanes now. 8pm-5am.  they had 3 lane closed headed outbound from faire torwards smyrna/Nashville. Tonight was frist nigh I've seen traffic really backed-up. Lanes are open during the day but some left lane have are bumpy where they've removed the old asphalt.

 I took  Murfreesboro rd which runs parallel to I-24 from  to Nashville.

It gets backed up near the festival the only real problem I've had was at the big intersection before faire. WHere the a flea Market, gas station, and a Tractor supply store. Plus there's usually people collectiing for charity in the intersection and drivers are watching them and not the flow of traffic.

It's Memorial Day weekend. TDOT usually stops all construction on travel holidays. You should be fine.

 Drink lots of water.  Also watch what you eat. stick with fruit plate and lite stuff.

This past Saturday there was a Church handing out water at the gates. Don't know if they were there with second harvest food drive. I don't know if they'll be back this wa the first time they've been there.
