The city of Lebanon currently has an ongoing sanitary sewer, natural gas and sidewalk rehabilitation project on West Main Street that may cause traffic delays.

According to Public Works Commissioner Jeff Baines, intermittent lane closures on West Main Street between Castle Heights Avenue and South Hatton Street are expected to continue for the next several months due to a sidewalk rehabilitation project. Conrad Construction Co. in Lebanon is doing the work.

Baines said Castle Heights Avenue at West Main Street will see partial closures for the next two to three weeks due to sewer work involved in the project. He said alternate routes should be considered for through traffic on Castle Heights Avenue.

Baines said all businesses, including city offices, on Castle Heights Avenue will remain accessible despite the construction.

A scheduled sewer rehabilitation on Pennsylvania Avenue is also planned in the months to come, Baines said.

The bulk of traffic interruptions will take place during daylight hours, and the Pennsylvania Avenue project will continue into 2013.

Baines said future updates will be given periodically on all lane closures, and construction is subject to inclement weather.

“Thank you for driving with caution through these construction zones,” Baines said. “Though these areas will see some congestion, we do not anticipate significant delays to traffic.”

In addition, the Tennessee Department of Transportation released its weekly update on road construction projects in Wilson County.

Alternating lane closures on Interstate 40 eastbound and westbound are expected for median sign footing excavation from Central Pike to east of State Route 109. One lane will remain open in each direction daily from 8 p.m. until 5 a.m., excluding Saturdays.

Alternating lane closures on State Route 109 at the Cumberland River Bridge are expected for workers to pour concrete and set a barrier rail. Work will take place daily from 8 p.m. until 6 a.m.

Alternating lane closures on I-40 westbound at mile marker 240.8 in Wilson County are expected to install guardrail and cameras. The work will take place daily from 9 p.m. until 5 a.m.
