Metro Department of Public Works has announced that repairs to the McCrory Lane bridge over the Harpeth River near the Cheatham County line are expected to begin next week.

The first phase of the project is set to begin Monday, Aug. 27, and will close the east side of the bridge. Phase 2 will later close the west side. The goal is to replace concrete approaches at both ends of the bridge.

To avoid closing the bridge, the approaches will be constructed one at a time. Temporary traffic signals installed at each end of the bridge will allow one lane of traffic to cross at a time, according to Public Works.

The repair work is expected to last about 12 weeks — six weeks for each phase — weather permitting.
