Hennessee Bridge coming down
Hennessee Bridge presents dangerously tight driving conditions when a large vehicle is on the bridge.
Dauntingly narrow, Hennessee Bridge is in the process of being replaced.A $4.5 million project is underway to replace the 18-foot-wide bridge with one twice as wide, 36 feet. Completion is projected on or before Oct. 31, 2018.“We’re just lucky we haven’t had a tragedy on that bridge,” said Warren County Commissioner Tommy Savage, who spearheaded efforts to have the bridge replaced. “The highway is 24 feet wide before you enter the bridge and it funnels down to just 18 feet wide, curb to curb, once you’re on the bridge.
