KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Tennessee Department of Transportation says it will rebuild three piers supporting the Henley Bridge rather than try to repair the severely deteriorated concrete pillars.
The Knoxville News Sentinel (http://bit.ly/TBeX9k) reports officials aren't sure yet how much more time and money it will add to the $24.7 million project that has closed the span for two years. Originally, the bridge had a completion date set for June 30.
TDOT bridge division director Wayne Seger says officials should have "a very honed estimate" by mid-January.
Seger said damage to the three piers was more extensive than originally thought.
