Bridge Delayed Again

Once again, the planed new bridge over the Tennessee River below Fort Loudon Dam has been delayed. Apparently, a portion of the bridge will need to be redesigned to accommodate changes to Coast Guard navigational channel requirements. The bids for the bridge project were set to go out in October. The delay could be many months.

Sure seems like somebody in the process would have checked the regulations for the bridge before the design was completed. No doubt the redesign will be costly.
