Parts of Broadway between Fifth and Sixth avenues will be closed for about two months to allow work for the Fifth + Broadway construction site.

The closing will begin on Monday, July 16. For the following two months, one westbound lane and two eastbound lanes will be open.

Skanska, a construction company, will be working under Broadway to make improvements to the infrastructure in the area.

The work will help Metro Water Services, Nashville Electric Service and Piedmont Natural Gas meet the growing demands of large new projects and increased densification throughout the lower Broadway corridor, according to a news release.

The work will include modifications to existing sewer/stormwater systems and gas and electrical infrastructure.
