Work on the new interchange at Broad Street, Memorial Boulevard and Old Fort Parkway in Murfreesboro is making progress.
“We hope you have witnessed the progress as you drive through our work zone, as these last few months on the project have been extremely busy,” said Tennessee Department of Transportation Region 3 spokesperson Kathryn Schulte. “With the southern ramps in various stages of construction and retaining walls going up on the north side of the intersection, it is much easier to visualize the finished interchange.”
Motorists will see a change this month in the traffic pattern.
“Our biggest news for the upcoming quarter is we intend to place eastbound traffic for Old Fort Parkway/ Memorial Boulevard onto the southern ramps by mid-August,” said Schulte. “Once you cross over the CSX overpass, the east bound travel lanes will be diverted onto the southwest ramp. By the time a driver reaches the bottom of this ramp, there will be a dedicated left-turn lane, a thru lane, and a combination thru or right-turn lane.”
The change will be the same pattern but on a smaller scale than what is currently in use on Old Fort Parkway.
As always, motorists are urged to use caution, reduce speed, and be alert to changing road conditions in the construction zone.
