KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) A major bridge rehabilitation project in Knoxville will close a bridge over Fort Loudoun Lake for an expected two years.

The Tennessee Department of Transportation said the Henley Bridge, which carries U.S. 441, is scheduled to close Jan. 3 for extensive repairs.

Contractor Britton Bridge of Mt. Juliet won the contract, which includes a $1 million bonus to complete the work by Dec. 31, 2012.

TDOT said the contractor will recycle 24,000 tons (21,772 t) of concrete from the bridge and reuse about 800 tons (725 t) of reinforcing steel.

Henley Street becomes Chapman Highway as it crosses the bridge and is one of the tourist routes to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
