Titans Game to screw up Thursday afternoon rush hour traffic

With a Tennessee Titans game scheduled for a 7:25 PM kickoff tomorrow at Nissan Stadium, authorities have decided to seal off some downtown streets and bridges at 4 PM.  The Woodland Street bridge will close at that time to everybody but pedestrians and shuttle buses (and, one presumes, bikes).  MTA buses that normally use that bridge are instead being redirected to the James Robertson Pkwy and Jefferson St bridges.

Additionally, the Korean Veterans bridge will close to car traffic heading into East Nashville as the game nears its end.  There are other MTA routes that will be on detour for (apparently) all day Thursday, but it’s not clear from the city’s press release what other streets will be closed.

Sinkhole closes part of Korean Veterans Boulevard

Update: The city’s press release says that only one lane is closed in the eastbound direction.  It also says it’s at the KVB intersection with 4th Ave N.  Take that with a grain of salt, as this is clearly 4th Ave S and the sinkhole is on the westbound side.  They expect a temporary patch by 5 PM.

Public Works is reporting that a sinkhole opened up on the 4th Ave S crosswalk across Korean Veterans Blvd.  The whole westbound side of KVB is closed until they figure out how to plug that hole in the ground.
