TDOT Contractor to Begin Bridge Replacement Project on Interstate 24 in Chattanooga, Hamilton County
TDOT contract crews are scheduled to begin a project to replace bridges over and on I-24 near mile marker 183 in Chattanooga, Hamilton County. Originally built in the 1960s, the bridge on Belvoir Avenue over I-24 and the bridges on I-24 over Germantown Road will be replaced in a $32.9-million project using both traditional techniques and an innovative process called Accelerated Bridge Construction (ABC). ABC requires short-term, total road closures to allow crews the space to do their jobs and the freedom to work around the clock. The closures will also allow construction to be completed much quicker.
