Recently the Old Railroad Bridge Co., Inc (ORBC) Board members addressed the decay found in cross ties on the upper deck of the Railroad Bridge.
The lower walking deck on the bridge was closed to visitors during the removal of 25 deteriorated cross ties during the week of Sept. 27, 2015. In addition, any part of other cross ties that were deemed to be deteriorated and in danger of falling on walkers below were removed.
Many thanks to those who volunteered to help in this effort. The ORBC’s Board Members continues their efforts to make the bridge a vital and safe place for individuals, groups and families to visit and experience the beautiful Tennessee River scenery.
