Sligo ribbon cut
New bridge complete months ahead of schedule
The ribbon was officially cut on the new Sligo Bridge Friday. Tennessee Department of Transportation Commissioner John Schroer was joined by state and local officials to celebrate the official completion of the project. The $38.9-million bridge is .8 mile long and 45 feet wide, and replaces the former 24-foot wide structure, which had been standing since 1948.
