The Tennessee Department of Transportation will conduct quarterly testing and maintenance on the Market Street Bridge in downtown Chattanooga this Sunday, during which time the bridge will be closed to through traffic. From 8 a.m. to no later than 2 p.m., the bridge will be closed to vehicle and pedestrian traffic as the testing is performed.
This inspection was slated to occur in late December, but it was postponed due to weather. Should inclement weather or unforeseen circumstances delay this week’s inspection, it will be rescheduled to take place at a later date.
Drivers are advised to use the Olgiati Bridge or the Veterans Bridge as alternate routes while the Market Street Bridge is closed.
