Blasting Scheduled Near BNA®’s Donelson Pike Underway Through January 26


NASHVILLE  Beginning Jan. 12, blasting activity will take place near Nashville International Airport®’s Donelson Pike entrance for several days over a two-week period. Blasting will occur twice a day on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays through Jan. 26 to accommodate a new sanitary sewer. Dates are subject to change.

Out of an abundance of safety, this work will involve traffic stops on Donelson Pike and in certain locations at BNA.

NOTE: Passengers flying on affected days should allow ample time to arrive due to traffic stops near the airport’s Donelson Pike entrance. Alternatively, travelers may use the airport’s I-40E entrance (exit 216A), which will not be affected by blasting.
