The westbound lanes are expected to open on August 6, after equipment from that side is removed, the department said.
The equipment removal will happen one side at a time because this is “the safest scenario for the workers,” the release reads.
“We know having the bridge closed has been incredibly inconvenient,” TDOT Commissioner Clay Bright said. “We appreciate the public’s patience while our team made the repairs and performed extensive inspections to ensure its structurally sound for many years to come.”
