‘We need to shut traffic down’: Massive crack in Memphis bridge prompted urgent 911 calls

More than 40,000 vehicles cross the bridge every day, with 25 percent of that traffic coming from trucks, said Lawrence, the TDOT spokeswoman. It was last inspected in August 2020, she said, and the crack wasn’t reported at the time. She added that most of the state’s bridges, including the Hernando de Soto Bridge, get some sort of inspection every year.
