TDOT says Repairs to Veterans Memorial Bridge to Begin Soon

Repair work on the Veteran’s Memorial Bridge on College Street is expected to begin this month, possibly next week.
Jennifer Flynn, Community Relations Officer with the Tennessee Department of Transportation in Chattanooga says the cost of the project is $141,806. “This is a project for the repair of the bridge on College Street over U.S. 70. Work should start on the project by the first of next week. The signal lights are up already on each end of the bridge and for the duration of the project College Street will be reduced to one lane with the signals controlling traffic crossing the bridge.”
“The contractor on the project is Jamison Construction, LLC from McEwen Tennessee. The price of the contract is $141,806 and it should be completed on or before May 15th, 2009. They will be doing concrete repair and deck repair on the top of the bridge.”
The bridge has received collision damage over the years caused by large trucks that have hit the underside of the structure on Highway 70.
