Repair work is about to begin on the historic Walnut Street Bridge. From fresh paint to the replacement of portions of the deck and corroded ironwork, one of Chattanooga’s best-known icons is getting some much needed attention. The work is expected to take approximately six months and is being performed by Bell and Associates Construction Company.
The company will be communicating proactively through a Facebook page set up to share information about the work and documenting progress along the way. Bell President Keith Pyle said, “Our team is committed to making these repairs in a way that causes minimal disruption to those visiting the bridge. We know the importance of having the bridge available during ‘Wine Over Water’, the ‘Head of the Hooch’ races and many other special events.”
Bell encouraged those interested in the project to visit the Walnut Street Bridge page on Facebook for regular updates and news about the progress of the work.
