As part of the $132.5 million project to redesign the Interstate 75/Interstate 24 "split," the Spring Creek Road bridge that crosses I-24 is being replaced.

Contract crews for the Tennessee Department of Transportation will reduce the bridge from four lanes to two - one in each direction - during the project.

Initial work will begin Sunday night, when crews will shift and re-stripe the lanes, as well as reconfigure traffic signals at the intersections of Spring Creek Road with North Terrace and South Terrace.

TDOT officials say that work should be done by morning rush hour Monday.

When finished, the new bridge will include four travels lanes, a 12-foot median, two four-foot bikes lanes and sidewalks on each side.

TDOT contract crews will be replacing the Spring Creek Road bridge over I-24.
