MALFUNCTIONING HENLEY LIGHTS TURNED OFF
The decorative lights on the deck of the Henley Bridge have been malfunctioning and have been turned off since early September. The lights began erratically flashing multiple colors, and they had become a distraction to motorists. The City is in the process of reviewing repair options as well as alternative technology. We apologize that requests for commemorative lightings cannot be accommodated at this time. We know how meaningful these lightings are to the Knoxville groups that request them, and it is a priority to restore programmable bridge lighting in order to help promote community events and awareness campaigns. - City staff
