If you commute to and from Nashville you have noticed the orange barrels and lane change notifications at the bridge over the Harpeth and Anderson Road (mile marker 190). The work to be done is not repair work. The 2 bridges will be completely replaced by a new $10.3 million dollar concrete box bean bridge.
The contractor, Bell & Associates plans to work in the median for Phase 1 of the project which is expected to be completed by the summer of 2016.
Two (2) lanes of traffic will be maintained in both directions of I-40 throughout the project. When lane closures are necessary, they will be done nightly. Anderson road will be closed at different times, but it will not be shut down for two years as indicated to you.
TDOT representative Heather Jenson said last week that “two (2) lanes of traffic will be maintained in both directions of I-40 throughout the project.” She added, “When lane closures are necessary, they will be done nightly.”
Anderson road will also be closed at different times. The Pegram and Kingston Springs Fire Departments have already worked out a plan of coverage for the time that the road will be closed.
