After launching I-440 work west of I-65, traffic shifts will now begin toward Nolensville Road

Driving is about to get more complicated on I-440.

Starting the night of Friday, March 15, the contractor will begin shifting traffic on I-440 between I-65 and Nolensville Road as the weather allows, according to the Tennessee Department of Transportation.

Initial work begin at the beginning of the month west of I-65 between the Granny White Pike area and West End Avenue.

By early spring, the entire corridor is expected to be under heavy construction. The contractor will be removing the elevated grassy median and rubblizing concrete in the inside lanes. From now through August 2020, I-440 will be restricted to two travel lanes in each direction from 5 a.m.-9 p.m., and one travel lane in each direction from 9 p.m.-5 a.m.

The contract for the $152 million project was awarded to Kiewit Infrastructure South Group this past August, and includes an August 2020 completion date. The contractor will be rubblizing the existing deteriorated concrete and using the material in the new asphalt roadway.
