TDOT Announces Two More Lanes to Open on Henley Bridge

Posted: 02/24/2014
February 24, 2014 - The Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) announced today that two more lanes of traffic will open on the Henley Bridge this afternoon.

Two lanes of traffic in each direction will return to the bridge for the first time since January of 2011. The bridge opened to one lane of traffic in each direction last October.

On Tuesday, February 25th, crews will remove striping and repaint lines to modify the intersection at Moody Avenue and Chapman Highway. Once complete, detour signage in the project area will also be removed.

Although the bridge will be open to two lanes of traffic in each direction, work continues on the historic structure, with the due date for total project completion remaining June 3, 2014. Please use caution when traveling on the bridge as workers will be present.
