Henley Bridge opening set for Oct. 17

Well, it looks like the Henley Bridge will open Thursday, Oct. 17 at 12:01 a.m. Or at least one lane in both directions will open, which is still cool. The bike lanes, however, won't open until the final completion date of June 3, 2014.

The entire project is expected to cost some $31 million.

In a released statement Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett said:

“Finally, the Henley Street Bridge is reopening to traffic next Thursday, and this is great news for businesses and residents in South Knox County. Unfortunately, the final completion of the bridge is sometime away, so it’s important that we continue to support businesses south of the river.”
