"The historic Gay Street Bridge in Downtown Knoxville is closed indefinitely after a “compromised element” was discovered during a routine inspection by the Tennessee Department of Transportation."

Well, that's sad. Makes it a little less convenient to get to the South riverfront and Sevier Ave. businesses, but the Henley Bridge isn't too bad just more traffic. Pedestrian and cyclists have to be much more csreful.

I don't remember if there are posted weight limits but wonder if the new construction at the Davey apartments attracted heavy equipment.

We were by there the other day. Did not even notice the Davy Apartments. Those are the ones at Council Place and Blount and Gay?

So is it named for Davy Crockett?

Henley between Blount and Mimosa. They have a Davy temp building/office right in Council Place, but the apartments are right on Henley.

Where the Cold Storage Lounge was.

Ah, I have seen those apartments. Don't remember the Cold Storage Lounge. Do remember the Holiday Inn bar.

I'm pretty sure that's what they named the HI bar. That's the spot.
