The City of Sevierville Street Department has extended the traffic advisory period for work on the Douglas P. Bishop Bridge on Gists Creek Road. The bridge spans the Little Pigeon River between Highway 66 and Old Knoxville Highway.
The bridge rail cleaning is now anticipated to be completed by the end of the day on Wednesday, May 25. The work was originally scheduled to be completed by the end of today, Friday, May 20.
Right traffic lane closures in both directions across the bridge are required to safely perform the maintenance. Motorists should watch for changing traffic patterns and be aware of workers and equipment in the area.
