(WBIR) A heavily traveled bridge in Cocke County reopened Sunday after being closed for nearly two years.

TDOT closed Wolf Creek Bridge in April 2012 after engineers said it was "structurally deficient." Crews stripped the bridge all the way down to its concrete arches. TDOT then rebuilt and widened the bridge.

Construction was ahead of schedule: officials originally estimated to complete construction by March 2014. The bridge not only crosses the French Broad River but also a set of railroad tracks.

Since the bridge is now 94-years-old, it's now eligible to be added to the national register of historic places.
