SURGOINSVILLE (WATE) - A bridge in Hawkins County has reopened, after being closed for more than two months.

Longs Bend Road Bridge was scheduled to open in December 2013, but winter weather delayed the project.

Crews put the finishing touches on the bridge Monday.

The detour added at least 15 minutes to the commutes of anyone who lived on the other side of the bridge.

Hawkins County Roads Superintendent Lowell Bean had originally announced that crews would finish paving the road last Friday.

Winter weather struck again, however, when the paving company realized their oil lines were frozen.
