Bridge demolition will close section of I-24

Wednesday, February 28, 2001 at 1:00am

A request to close I-24 at Briley Parkway and Thompson Lane for several hours Sunday morning has been approved by the Tennessee Department of Transportation. The closure will allow road crews to avoid sixteen weekends of single lane traffic.

The overpass bridges at Briley Parkway and Thompson Lane are being replaced to widen of I-24. Last year, one side of each set of bridges was removed and traffic shifted to the existing structures while new bridges were built. This weekend, traffic will be shifted to the new bridges so the existing structures can be demolished and replaced.
