GOODLETTSVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Starting this weekend, the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) will have lane and ramp closures on Interstate 65 at Rivergate Parkway.

These closures will impact three of five ramps at Exit 96/Rivergate Parkway in Goodlettsville over the next few months, as well as create extra delays in the area.
