$2.6 million Tennessee River bridge repair project at Savannah commences

Construction underway on the Tennessee River bridge at Savannah, in a view looking west.

Motorists traveling across the Tennessee River at Savannah can expect to encounter construction on the bridge from now to early fall.
Tennessee-based Jones Brothers has a $2.6 million contract for the project, which entails a partial deck replacement and some girder repairs on the Harrison-McGarity-Carpenter bridge on U.S. 64, according to the Tennessee Department of Transportation.
TDOT spokeswoman Nichole Lawrence said there will be intermittent inside and outside lane closures for east and westbound traffic throughout the project, which is slated for completion by Sept. 30.
The work is being done as a result of normal wear and tear, she said, adding, “It’s a big bridge repair.”

    Now if the state would repave the roads/streets perhaps we might not do damage to the alignment of our cars.
