Sticky situation

All lanes of Interstate 24 in south Nashville are back open Friday after crews worked to remove an adhesive spilled during an early-morning crash.

Tennessee Department of Transportation crews had closed off the right two lanes of I-24 East in the Antioch area Friday morning as they put down new reflectors. Police said that at about 5 a.m., a tractor-trailer driver moved to the left as directed but moved back into the right lanes before the construction zone ended.As a result, the tractor-trailer driver slammed into the back of a TDOT truck near Old Hickory Boulevard and then pushed the vehicle into the median…

Adhesive used to lay down reflectors spilled out of the TDOT truck and onto the interstate. Crews will be working to clean the adhesive off, a job made more difficult Friday morning, they said, because of freezing temperatures.
