Placeholder Image
Repairs to the bridge over Mountain Creek on Smithville Highway are nearing an end. The project completion date is set for June 2014 and it’s expected to barely make that deadline.According to Tennessee Department of Transportation spokes-person Jennifer Flynn, the project is going to push the ending date envelope to within a couple days of July.“The estimated completion date is June 28. Close to July, but not quite there,” said Flynn, when she was asked if an actual day has been set in June or if the work will extend into July.The bridge is located in the Dibrell area and has been down to one lane for months due to the repairs being made on the bridge by TDOT. Traffic over the bridge is being maintained and controlled by a temporary signal for public safety.
