Important Project NOTES: For those traveling to Knoxville, the Henley Bridge closed beginning January 3, 2011. Please refer to the project website for detailed information: www.tn.gov/Henley.com
The speed limit is now 35 mph.
It will remain in effect for the duration of the project (October 31, 2014).
Phase 2 – Douglas Dam Road (SR-139) to south of the I-40 Interchange:
Phase 2 is Complete!
Phase 3 - Boyds Creek Highway (SR-338) to Douglas Dam Road (SR-139):
Phase III crews have been making good progress despite the rainy weather we've had the last few weeks. Crews have essentially completed placing concrete for the northbound widened bridge deck. Utility relocations and storm drain installation are in progress throughout the project. Crews are boring under SR-66 just north of the bridge for new water and sewer crossings (as pictured below). Grading is also underway in sections and crews are dressing and stabilizing slopes where possible. The overhead electric lines are being transferred to the east side of the bridge to allow for safe construction of the southbound bridge widening.
Short duration traffic stops should be expected daily throughout the project as crews move equipment and materials in and out of the work zone.
If you have any questions regarding the project, please call us at 865.429.4509. As always, please use extreme caution and reduce speed through the work zone.
