Weekend Construction In Nashville


The Tennessee Department of Transportation is urging fans to plan ahead on travel arrangements to the Vanderbilt campus for the Sept. 21 football matchup between the Commodores and LSU in light of the scheduled three-day closure of the I-65 and I-440 interchange located just south of downtown Nashville. The Commodores and Tigers are scheduled to kick off at 11 a.m. CT in Vanderbilt Stadium.

Officials are encouraging out-of-town fans of both teams to arrive into Nashville, preferably north of I-440, on Friday prior to the closure.

The Commodores and Tigers are scheduled to kick off Sept. 21 at 11 a.m. CT, in Vanderbilt Stadium.

For fans residing south of the closed interchange, all other surface roads over I-440 will be open, including West End Avenue (Hwy. 70), Woodlawn Drive, 21st Avenue South (Hwy. 431), Belmont Boulevard, Granny White Pike/12th Avenue South), and Nolensville Road (Hwy. 41A).

Construction crews are closing the I-440 interchange at I-65 to place beams aimed at connecting two existing I-440 bridges spanning I-65.  When the closure is in effect, traffic moving toward the I-65/440 interchange will be reduced to one lane and detoured away from the construction area.

  • Eastbound traffic on I-440 will be detoured to I-65 southbound.
  • Westbound traffic on I-440 will be detoured to I-65 northbound.
  • Northbound traffic on I-65 will be detoured to I-440 eastbound.
  • Southbound traffic on I-65 will be detoured to I-440 westbound.
  • Highway 31 (Franklin Road) will be closed from Berry Road to Woodmont Boulevard.
