Expect delays as TDOT preps Silliman Evans Bridge for repairs

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

The Tennessee Department of Transportation plans to make repairs to the Silliman Evans Bridge east of downtown Nashville, but the work means some likely traffic problems beginning this weekend.

TDOT will close one lane of westbound Interstate 40 at the Interstate 24 split near the exits for Fesslers Lane and Second/Fourth avenues at 8 p.m. Friday.

The interstate will fully reopen by Monday at 6 a.m.

Crews will be working to repair and repaint the Evans bridge over the course of the next five weekends, and the entire project is expected to be complete in May, TDOT said.
