Cumberland park bridge closing for four months

CROSSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- State transportation officials are closing the historic Cumberland Mountain State Park Bridge for several months of repairs.

The stone arch bridge was built in 1936 by the Civilian Conservation Corps.

The Transportation Department says the bridge will be totally renovated, but its historic integrity will be maintained.

Mid-State Construction Company of Livingston is the prime contractor on the $700,000 project.

TDOT estimates it will be completed in May.

After the bridge is closed on Wednesday, visitors can use the Hwy. 127 South park entrance. The restaurant can be reached by Pigeon Ridge Rd.
