Railing from I-75 South bridge collapses onto I-24/I-75 split, shutting down interstate Monday afternoon [photos, document]

Tennessee Department of Transportation employees work to remove the concrete railing that fell from the Interstate 75 South ramp to I-75 South onto the I-75 North to I-24 West ramp Monday, April 1, 2019 in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The I-75 South ramp is expected to be reopened to one lane by Monday night or Tuesday morning.

UPDATE: The I-75 South ramp has been reopened to one lane. The ramp will remain one lane until repairs can be made, according to a TDOT news release.


The side of an Interstate 75 South bridge ramp collapsed late Monday morning, tumbling onto the I-75/I-24 ramp headed to Chattanooga, stopping traffic at one of the region's busiest intersections and injuring a driver who plowed into the fallen debris.
