The Tennessee Department of Transportation announced on Thursday it will close the Hillwood Boulevard bridge over the CSX railroad tracks next month.
In a news release, TDOT said the bridge will be closed beginning on Oct. 1 while crews construct a new bridge.
The new bridge is expected to be complete in July 2019.
The bridge, which spans the CSX tracks and Richland Creek, is located just off Harding Pike (U.S. Highway 70S). It was originally built in 1916 and is one of the oldest bridges in Davidson County.
The $2.3 million construction contract was awarded to Bell & Associates.
The contract completion date is July 31, 2019.
