Man Saved after Climbing I-65 Sign, Causing 2-Hour Road Closure in Nashville, Tennessee

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A man was saved from a sign above Interstate 65 early Tuesday evening about two hours after he climbed on top.


The road was shut down in both directions at Rosa Parks Blvd. around 3:30 p.m. as they worked to rescue the man, whose identity has not been released.

Drivers in southbound lanes were turned around and rerouted off the highway around 5 p.m., but northbound drivers remained at a standstill as the sign is above those lanes.

At this time, it isn’t clear what the man’s intentions were or why he climbed the sign.

Traffic remains slow through the area as officials maintain a heavy presence at the scene. It’s unclear when the roadways will completely reopen.
