Rescheduled Thrasher Bridge work to briefly close lanes over Chickamauga Dam

Oct 29, 2020

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — Motorists traveling along Highway 153 across Chickamauga Dam should exercise caution during the overnight hours of Sunday, Nov. 1, while Tennessee Valley Authority work crews conduct routine maintenance of Thrasher Bridge. This work originally was set for Oct. 25.

Bridge maintenance is necessary to ensure these pieces of vital transportation infrastructure continue to perform safely.

To help minimize traffic disruptions, work will begin at 8 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 1, and extend to 6 a.m. Monday, Nov. 2. Travel will be restricted to a single lane when workers are present. Chattanooga Police will be on hand to assist with traffic.

Workers may extend or reschedule the work during inclement weather. TVA will notify the public of any changes to the project schedule and appreciates your understanding during this important work.
