I-40 (Tennessee DOT) - The Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) has closed a short section of I-40 between James White Parkway (Exit 388) and Hall of Fame Drive (Exit 389) from early May 2008 through June 2009 as part of the SmartFIX40 construction project. During the closure, this segment of I-40 will be widened to six through lanes and four auxiliary lanes. Work will also include the construction of nine bridges, 14 retaining walls and three noise walls. Additionally, two existing bridges will be demolished, 12 side roads will be completed and seven new ramps will be constructed. TDOT estimates by closing this section of I-40 for the work, they will save motorists two to three years of construction time and frustration. Source: USDOT.GOV
