Tennessee Department of Transportation contract crews have completed construction of a new bridge on Belvoir Avenue over I-24 in Chattanooga, and the bridge was opened to traffic on Wednesday.
The Belvoir Avenue Bridge has been closed since April 20, 2020, when the contractor began constructing the new bridge. The Belvoir Avenue Bridge construction is part of a larger $32.9‑million project that also includes replacement of the I-24 bridges over Germantown Road. That part of the project is still under construction. The entire project is expected to be completed in August 2021.
