Originally built in 1968, the eastbound and westbound I-40 bridges over Herman Street, Clinton Street, Jo Johnston Avenue and Charlotte Avenue in downtown Nashville were showing advanced signs of deterioration and required near-constant maintenance. Recognizing these four twin bridges—eight in total—needed immediate attention, Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) selected Gresham Smith as the lead design engineering firm for “Fast Fix 8”—a $62 million bridge rehabilitation project that replaced the failing bridges seven months ahead of schedule.
