Bridge collapses on part of I-75 near Chattanooga

CHATTANOOGA, TN. (CNN) – A bridge partially collapsed on a Tennessee interstate Monday morning.

The railing fell at the I-24 and I-75 split.

At least one vehicle was damaged.

According to the “Chattanooga Times Free Press,” police confirmed there was one non-life threatening injury.

T-DOT estimated that traffic could be closed for hours on northbound and southbound lanes near the split.

CNN affiliate WTVC reports that the last time the bridge was inspected was in July of 2016.

Back in November 2017, Tennessee’s transportation commissioner called the split the “worst intersection in the state.”

It’s unclear what caused the collapse.
