Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

On Friday, TDOT crews will begin repairing the broken bridge deck panels on Interstate 24 eastbound at mile marker 178.4, which is the bridge over Chestnut Street near the U.S. 27 interchange. 

Work is scheduled to begin at 9:00pm Friday, March 11 and should be completed by 5:00am Monday.

During these repairs, the outside (right) lane and shoulder of the bridge will be closed to traffic. 

TDOT spokesperson Jennifer Flynn says that crews will also be installing barrier rails at the repair site starting at 9:00pm Thursday night, and should be done by 5:00am Friday. 

The Tennessee Highway Patrol will assist with traffic control, and drivers can see traffic information on TDOT’s SmartWay Dynamic Message Signs.

The work could be rescheduled due to weather.
