Blasting activity is planned near the airport’s Donelson Pike entrance/exit on several days during a two-week period beginning January 12. This work will accommodate the installation of a sanitary sewer.

How will this affect travelers and the public?

  • Weather permitting, blasting will occur on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at approximately 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. The first blast is scheduled for Wednesday, Jan. 12. This activity is expected to conclude on Wednesday, Jan. 26 (subject to change).
  • The sound of blasting will be audible near the airport and potentially within the surrounding area.
  • Vibrations from blasting may or may not be felt at the terminal, parking garages, parking lots, and Consolidated Rental Car Facility.
  • Traffic will be stopped for a brief time near the blasting site for safety purposes while each blast is conducted. Duration: Approximately 5-10 minutes.
  • Traffic will be stopped in the following locations:
    • Donelson Pike (Northbound and Southbound lanes) near the airport’s entrance/exit;
    • Donelson Pike entrance and exit ramps leading into/away from BNA;
