A structural engineer, Volkert Engineering, Inc. has been contracted to survey and inspect the bridge this week. Design work for the repairs will take approximately one month to complete. The City will then select a contractor to begin repairs. This process could take approximately three months depending on the extent of the needed repairs. Once the repair work is complete, TDOT will reinspect the bridge and approve the repairs prior to reopening. The complete process is expected to take at least six months but could take longer due to strains - including supply chain, staffing and COVID-related issues.
