The Hwy 99 bridge is the eastern span of Hwy 99, and is one of the oldest major bridges in Tennessee.
At some point earlier this year, the structure was badly damaged by heavy winds. Crews were able to repair the structure by Sunday evening, however, according to Steve Pomerantz, spokesman for Hwy 99 Bridge Constructions.
“It appears from a few photos I took of it, it’s got some rust in some places and the whole thing’s looking pretty good,” Pomerantz said Monday.
It is also possible that the damage caused by the wind could be visible from the Hwy 99 interchange as well, he said.

Pomerantz said it appears the truck is similar to vehicles taken from the Hwy 99 interchange several years ago.
“The difference is the front end of this one, it’s just too big to be a truck,” Pomerantz said. “They’re also missing quite a bit of the frame, if you want to call it that. I’m still figuring it out, but to my knowledge it’s the same kind of type of vehicle.”
The exact location of the truck remains unknown as troopers from both agencies continue to investigate the disappearance.
The bridge is the east span of Hwy 99 from the intersection of State Highway 9, at the intersection of Collyer Street and Highway 99, into the woods behind Fort McHenry, according to Pomerantz.
