Traffic Shift Planned on Broad Street in Rutherford County
Lanes Reduced from Seven to Five
Murfreesboro, Tenn. – Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) contract crews plan to shift traffic on Broad Street (SR 1) in Murfreesboro. Weather permitting, crews have tentatively scheduled to start work Thursday, April 10 and it could take several days to completely shift traffic.
Thursday April 3 through Tuesday April 8, from 8:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. each day, there will be alternating lane closures on Old Fort Parkway (SR 96), Broad Street and College Street in order to prepare for the new traffic shift. Once the new traffic pattern is in place, there will be two travel lanes in each direction and a turn lane. The new traffic pattern will be in place for the next year and will allow crews to safely perform road and utility work.
