Tennessee Department of Transportation crews temporarily closed a portion of Cason Lane near the intersection of State Route 99 (New Salem Highway) in Murfreesboro beginning Monday, June 21.
Cason Lane north of the intersection is expected to be closed until Wednesday, July 14.
During the closure, all traffic will be detoured. Message boards are already in place to alert motorists to the closure.
The closure will allow crews to install new storm drainage. The work is part of the widening of State Route 99, between Cason Lane and Interstate 24. Due to the nature of the work, it is not possible to maintain a lane of travel while work is underway; however, local businesses will be open and accessible.
The $28.7 million road widening project is expected to be completed in September.
