Forest Heights bridge to be rebuilt


A TDOT spokesperson today announced that they have reconsidered traffic flow patterns and have decided to rebuild the Forest Heights bridge. The bridge was removed to allow for the widening of I-40, and due to the complaints of residents of the Forest Heights neighborhood, TDOT did not plan to rebuild it. Spokesperson Tommy Murdoch told reporters that the people living on Hollywood, an altnernate route across the interstate, made a good point. “Traffic was not eased, it was rerouted to Hollywood,” said Murdoch. “We should never have listened to those people on Forest Heights bitch so much. It was already a pain in the ass to get to the Homberg area of Kingston Pike, and that made it much worse.” The bridge is scheduled for completion by football season 2003.
