Woodland Street Bridge Closed Until Further Notice

December 1, 2011

An emergency closure of the Woodland Street Bridge is underway, following notice from the Coast Guard that a barge struck one of the bridge piers.

The bridge is being closed as a precautionary measure while Metro Public Works inspectors conduct a preliminary damage assessment this evening. A more detailed inspection is planned tomorrow morning.

Motorists will need to use alternate routes, including the Jefferson Street Bridge and Korean Veterans Boulevard Bridge, tonight and tomorrow morning.
