Replacement of a bridge deck in Kingsport has been delayed. According to TDOT, the contractor did not install the steel decking to their specifications.

Two weeks ago concrete was poured on the Orebank Road bridge, which passes over John B. Dennis Highway. But this week, a day after the slated completion date of Sept. 30, that concrete was being removed. Click the box below for a video report.
