Closure Plan Sparks New Debate Over "Old Bridge"

TDOT leaders consider shutting down 'old' I-55 bridge for two years

TDOT's proposed plan to close one of two bridges that cross the Mississippi River at Memphis has sparked a debate.  Many are putting pressure on the agency to reconsider.  They say it would be "catastrophic."  Obviously, it would create plenty of headaches.  But TDOT must weigh the long-term benefits of any temporary setbacks.  I was able to find one of the chief critics of the shutdown who was more than willing to talk about his reasons why.
