If I were you, I’d avoid downtown this weekend like you avoid your ex when you see each other at a social gathering.
I-40 will be shut down from the I-40/I-65 split on the east side to the I-40/I-24 split on the west side. The Demonbreun Street Exit will be kept open for westbound traffic only. This is part of a continuing project that has been going on for weeks.
There are other ways into downtown like Leb Road, Murfreesboro Road, Franklin Pike up to 8th. But! These will be busy also.
You have been warned.
Be Just and Fear Not
