Henley Bridge Week One Progress

Friday, January 07, 2011 | 06:01am
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – While work continues on the Henley Bridge, motorists are adjusting to the detour around the closure. Since the bridge closed on January 3, an additional five detour signs have been added to the route and an additional electronic message board was installed to indicate motorists must use the right two lanes to turn from Chapman Highway to Moody Avenue. Additional temporary curbing was also installed to alert motorists to the additional right turn lane. 
Crews are also continuing to monitor and modify traffic signal timing along the detour route.
Workers have removed the asphalt from the bridge deck and all deck lighting. Crews are currently removing the concrete from the approach to the bridge from the south end entrance.
