A widening project set to begin on Thursday night could is expected to cause delays on Interstate 40 in Wilson County.
Officials from the Tennessee Department of Transportation said lanes in both directions of the roadway will be shut down from Mt. Juliet Road to State Route 109.
At least one lane of the road will remain open at all times.
Crews are expected to be on site from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. beginning Thursday night continuing though Friday, August 3.
Drivers are asked to use caution, reduce their speed and be alert to changing traffic conditions in the work zone.
TDOT is expected to use portable message boards to alert motorists of lane closures and traffic shifts.
Motorists are advised to plan ahead and expect delays.
By 2014, the $56.6 million project will widen the roadway from four to eight lanes.
The improvements will include four 12-foot wide travel lanes, with one HOV lane in each direction, 10-foot wide paved outside shoulders and 12-foot wide paved inside shoulders.
