Nashville, TN - TDOT announced on Friday afternoon that they are officially out of roads to close in Nashville this weekend.
A TDOT representative said in a statement, "We have been working diligently all morning to identify additional roads that we could shut down, but unfortunately, we have reached capacity. We are also out of barrels."
According to sources, a last-minute plan to close down I-24, I-40 and 840 was rejected when construction engineers expressed concerns that shutting down every interstate would prevent construction workers from reaching the job sites.
The statement ended on a positive note, suggesting there will be plenty of road closures in the near future and even larger, more ambitious construction projects coming in the months and years ahead.
