Signs of Progress: JWP Bridge to Be Demolished

Knoxville (WVLT) - This weekend there will be another sign of progress on the SmartFix40 project in Downtown Knoxville.

TDOT will be demolishing the James White Parkway bridge over Willow Avenue and the railroad.

The Parkway is closed to traffic last month for nine months of reconstruction.

The demolition is set for 7:30 Sunday morning. There will be a 1,000 foot safety perimeter set around the demolition site.

We'll be there for the demolition; you can see it Sunday night at 6:30.
