WHAT’S GOING ON IN FRANKLIN AND BRENTWOOD?

NEWS

The Peytonsville Road Bypass over I-65 was imploded. For those of you that travel through Franklin or down I-65 on a regular basis, you are keenly aware of just how much of a nightmare it has been since the bridge was struck and severely damaged by a tanker in August. Subsequent to that damage, the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) ruled that the bridge was not structurally sound and must be rebuilt. They released a video on Youtube of the demolition… it’s pretty awesome!
