North Hamilton County toll bridge is feasible, study finds

Posted: Updated:

HAMILTON COUNTY, TN. (Times Free Press) -- A long-awaited study has found that a toll bridge across the Tennessee River in north Hamilton County is economically feasible, Tennessee's transportation commissioner says.

"We're continuing to move down that path," Schroer said Thursday after speaking to the Rotary Club in Chattanooga.

The study will be unveiled Dec. 5 for members of a Hamilton County Commission-appointed toll committee, and two public hearings will be held sometime after that, according to TDOT.
