TDOT Advises Woodland Street Bridge Can Be Reopened

12/1/2011

Following an onsite visual investigation, inspectors from the Tennessee Department of Transportation have determined the Woodland Street Bridge can be re-opened.

Metro bridge inspectors still plan to conduct a more detailed assessment of the east pier of the structure tomorrow morning.

An emergency closure was put in effect late this afternoon following notice from the Coast Guard that a barge struck the bridge pier earlier today.
