Tonight’s (Thursday's) scheduled closure of the Hurricane Bridge on State Route 56 over the Caney Fork River in DeKalb County has been canceled.
The closure, which is necessary to allow the contractor to pour a portion of the new concrete bridge deck, will be rescheduled. The work is part of a $26.9 million rehabilitation project which is scheduled to be complete in October 2013.
