Drivers who frequent the Oak Hill, and specifically Battery Lane, areas may soon need to plan an alternate route … for the next three months.

Workers from Metro Nashville Public Works and the Tennessee Department of Transportation will close a portion of Battery Lane to continue work to replace the Battery Lane bridge over the West Fork of Brown’s Creek on Monday, June 3. The road is expected to be closed for approximately 90 days.

According to TDOT, the work beginning next week will include the replacement of the bridge structure and will require the closure of both the eastbound and westbound lanes of Battery Lane between Lealand Lane and Granny White Pike. For a closer look at the suggested detours click here.

The goal of the project is to widen the bridge on Battery Lane to meet current road design standards. When finished TDOT expects the bridge to have a total width of 42 feet with two 12-foot lanes with 8-foot shoulders. The proposed bridge length is approximately 40 feet.

Local two-way traffic will be allowed to access their homes within the construction area on Battery Lane. TDOT message boards and Metro police officers will be present to help provide assistance with the detour routes.
