TDOT Advises Woodland Street Bridge Can Be Reopened

December 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.
