NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Tennessee Department of Transportation contract crews plan to shift traffic on I-65 southbound near the I-24 east merge in Nashville. Between mile markers 86 and 88, lanes of travel will be reduced from four to three lanes to allow for the continued widening of this stretch of I-65.
Weather permitting; crews have tentatively scheduled to start implementing the lane reduction on Wednesday, April 30.
Once the new traffic pattern is in place, there will be three travel lanes from the I-65 S / I-24 E merge to just south of Trinity Lane. The new traffic pattern will be in place for the next several months, when traffic will be shifted again to complete the remaining new lanes in late fall. Northbound lanes on I-65 have been reduced to three lanes in this same area since the project began.
