The Market Street Bridge will be closed to through traffic for a few hours this Sunday, Sept. 22, for quarterly testing and maintenance, according to a news release from the Tennessee Department of Transportation.
The bridge will be closed - weather permitting - from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. to both vehicle and pedestrian traffic during testing. Drivers should use the Olgiati Bridge or the Veterans Bridge as alternate routes.
If inclement weather or unforeseen circumstances delay the inspection, it will be rescheduled for a later date, TDOT said in the release.
Drivers can see construction activity and live streaming SmartWay traffic cameras here. Travelers can also dial 511 from any land-line or cellular phone for travel information, or follow TDOT on Twitter for statewide travel or Chattanooga area alerts.
