This particular almost-failure is definitely the result of negligence in inspection. Somebody was clearly not doing their job for at least a couple of years and possibly more like 5+. That crack should have been caught much sooner.

I-40 bridge over Mississippi to reopen next week

The reopening plan calls for all eastbound lanes to reopen Monday, Aug. 2 by 6 a.m. Central Time. Westbound lanes will reopen sometime Friday, Aug. 6; the exact time will be announced. ARDOT cautioned that this is the plan for reopening "barring any complications." An update is expected to be posted Friday, July 30.

After months of inspections and repairs, the remaining closed lanes of the I-40 Hernando de Soto bridge opened Monday.

The Tennessee Department of Transportationís announcement came two days after officials reopened the eastbound lanes of the Hernando de Soto bridge to vehicular traffic.

Law enforcement agencies will continue to monitor both the Hernando de Soto bridge and the I-55 bridge closely as traffic is allowed to resume on the iconic landmark.
