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.

But Tennessee Department of Transportation Commissioner John Schroer said a feasibility finding doesn't automatically mean there's a new bridge coming.

"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.
