Bridge-Repair/Maintenance

Notice of Weight Limit for Foster Avenue Bridge over CSX Railroad: Beginning Thursday, October 24, Metro Public Works placed new weight limit restrictions on the foster avenue bridge. Alternate traffic routes are required for two axle vehicles with weights greater than 10 tons and for vehicles with three or more axles with weights greater than 18 tons. Maps as well as detour routes are posted at: http://www.nashville.gov/public-works/getting-around-nashville/road-closures.aspx. After over 60 years of service, the Foster Ave Bridge is in the design phase for replacement. The bridge has been load posted to further extend its service life while design plans are finalized. Drivers of passenger cars and light duty pickup trucks will not be affected by the new weight limits. Construction of the bridge is anticipated to begin in fall 2015 and last 12 months.
