Historic bridge in Cocke County reopens after nearly two years

COCKE COUNTY, Tenn. (WVLT) -- The Wolf Creek Bridge on State Route 9 reopened for the first time in nearly two years on Sunday.

This bridge was dismantled down to the concrete arches and then rebuilt, after being classified as structurally deficient in early 2012.

The bridge is now 24 feet to 30 feet to accommodate wider travel lanes and two foot shoulders.

The bridge, which was originally completed in 1928, is eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places.
