Several state road projects remain ongoing in Wilson County throughout next week that could cause delays for motorists.
A paving project continues on State Route 171 or Mt. Juliet Road from the Davidson County line to north of State Route 265. Alternating lane closures are expected daily from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. to allow workers to install guardrail, pave and stripe the road.
An ongoing widening project continues on Interstate 40 from Central Pike to east of State Route 109. Alternating lane closures are expected nightly from 10 p.m. until 5 a.m. to allow for excavation and hauling operations. One lane will remain open in each direction.
Also on I-40, rolling roadblocks are expected daily from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. to allow for blasting. Police officers will direct traffic.
The northbound lane on State Route 109 between mile markers 13-14 will be closed Tuesday and Wednesday from 8 p.m. until 3 a.m. to allow workers to mill and pave the road. Traffic will be flagged.
Lane closures are possible on State Route 840 in Wilson County daily from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. to allow workers to patch potholes and nightly from 8 p.m. until 5 a.m. to allow for guardrail repairs.
Occasional lane and street closures on N. Maple Street near the Lebanon square are expected throughout August.
According to officials with Conrad Construction Co., workers will work on a sewer project in the area during that time, but it will not interfere with school bus routes or emergency vehicles.
