As part of the I-75/I-24 design-build interchange modification project in Hamilton County, TDOT contract crews will be replacing the Spring Creek Road bridge over I-24. To facilitate this work, the bridge must be reduced from four lanes to two lanes (one lane in each direction) for the duration of the project.
On the evening of Sunday, October 13, 2019, the contractor will shift and restripe the lanes on the bridge and reconfigure the traffic signals at the intersections of Spring Creek Road with North Terrace and South Terrace.
This new two-lane traffic pattern on the Spring Creek Road bridge will be in place before the start of morning rush-hour on Monday, October 14, 2019.Motorists are encouraged to be patient and alert as they adjust to this new traffic pattern.
Upon completion of the project, the new Spring Creek Road bridge will include four travel lanes (two in each direction), a 12-foot median, two 4-foot bike lanes, and two 5-foot sidewalks.
C.W. Matthews Contracting Co., Inc. is the contractor for the $132.6-million I‑75/I‑24 interchange modification design-build project, which is slated for completion in June 2021.

In 2016, the Tennessee Department of Transportation lost three workers in the line of duty. All three were struck by passing motorists. Those tragedies bring the total number of TDOT lives lost to 112. We don’t want to lose another member of our TDOT family. We’re asking you to WORK WITH US.
