If you travel to Nashville or plan to do so over the next 2.5 years, you'll be dealing with more traffic issues on Interstate 24.
Work is already is underway on a $30.5 million project on Interstate 24 at Hickory Hollow Parkway in south Nashville.
The goal of the project is to help relieve the traffic congestion at Exit 59 and improve access to the area, along with safety improvements at the I-24 East exit ramp at Exit 62.
According to Tennessee Department of Transportation, when the interchange at Exit 60 was built in the 1970s, the exit was a partial access facility for the Hickory Hollow Mall area. This project will allow drivers to access the south side of I-24 from Exit 60.
Lane closures will mostly take place at night between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m., but some lane closures could take place during the day on certain weekends in the spring 2019.
The contractor for the project is Jones Bros. Contractors. The project is expected to be completed by May 31, 2021.
