TDOT releases finding of last bridge inspection at I75/24 merge

CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – TDOT has released the last inspection report for the overpass bridge where a concrete railing fell off today on traffic below.

The bridge was inspected last July.

Inspectors rated it as “Fare.”

They recommended removing “loose concrete filler beneath beams” and removing a tree on the right side.

The inspectors general comments were “Trees growing on top of bent caps is increasing the size of concrete cracks.”

The next inspection was more than a year away, May 19, 2020.
