Old US 41 Bridge Repair Movement

Drivers will have another week before the Old U.S. 41 overpass closes south of Oaktown.  Knox County Highway Superintendent Benji Boyd reports the new closure date is Monday, March 27th.  The original closure date was set for today.

Boyd expects once the overpass closes for repairs, that it will remain closed well into the fall.  The bridge is the overpass for the CSX Railroad.  Traffic that normally takes that bridge will detour onto U.S. 41 to bypass the closing overpass.
