Cumberland River Bridge among TDOT repair projects
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Cumberland River Bridge in Montgomery County is among close to 90 repair projects planned by the Tennessee Department of Transportation.
Recent federal data show dozens of Tennessee bridges are among the thousands nationwide that have advanced deterioration or are at risk of collapsing.
A state Transportation Department spokeswoman says 20 bridges on the list are currently under construction for either replacement or repair. Another six are scheduled for replacement or repair within the next three years.
The Cumberland River Bridge is on the second list. It's scheduled for repair and is among the 86 projects for which the department plans to open bidding next month.
The projects include cable barrier repair, intersection improvements and bridge repair.
