Bridge on Cat Creek Road over Crumpton Creek will be Replaced

The bridge on Cat Creek Road over Crumpton Creek will be replaced in 2018, according to Benton Bartlett, Coffee County’s road superintendent.
The project will cost about $1 million, and funds raised through the state’s IMPROVE Act (Improving Manufacturing, Public Roads and Opportunities for a Vibrant Economy) will cover the expenses completely, according to Bartlett.
Gov. Bill Haslam’s IMPROVE Act, signed in April, aims to battle the state’s $10.5 billion backlog of road and bridge projects and is expected to bring $43 million in revenue for 10 road and bridge projects across Coffee County in the next 15 years.
Once construction begins, the bridge will be closed for several months. (Tullahoma News)
