The Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) will be closing a portion of I-40 in Cheatham County to repair the deck of the bridge over the Harpeth River.

The repairs will be stretched over a total of seven weekends. The first began on Friday, July 14 at 8 p.m. and lasted until Monday, July 17 at 5 a.m. in which one Westbound Lane was closed.

The bridge is safe to cross, but it has undergone multiple emergency patches. The longer closure periods will allow Dement Construction crews to make the necessary permanent repairs.

Work will close one westbound lane during the following weekends:

7/14 – 7-17
7/21 – 7/24
7/28 – 7/31

Work will close one eastbound lane during the following weekends:

8/04 – 08/07
8/11 – 08/14
8/18 – 08/21

Both east and westbound lanes will be impacted the weekend of 08/25 – 08/28

TDOT is encouraging drivers headed toward Memphis to use I-840 or alternate routes to avoid traffic backup.
