As part of the Tennessee Better Roads Program, State Route 840 (SR 840) was developed to encourage economic growth by improving community connectivity in Middle Tennessee. Gresham Smith was awarded the contract to perform construction, engineering and inspection services on three sections of the comprehensive project, including 44 bridges and more than 11 million cubic yards of roadway excavation.
Opened to traffic in 2012, the roadway encircles Middle Tennessee’s urban core, improving access to interstate connections for motorists and commercial transportation, reducing commute times and easing congestion in downtown Nashville.
