    They probably inspected it again, and there's a helluva lot more damage than the media knows about.

    Hit the nail on the head.
    The it lost one of two key elements. Either a ton of other stuff failed before it happened, or after it happened stuff is getting strained.

    they would NOT have did an emergency shut down if it was no dangerous. I assume they’re waiting for a detailed investigation to see if moving the beams would cause catastrophic failure. (I’m not an engineer)

    The Tenn-Tom Waterway is one way to get around a closure in Memphis. I don't know if this is what they're planning. They would have to build a road on both ends of any temporary bridge reconnecting with I-40. The whole idea is crazy.

    Put a couple of crossovers in and run everyone across the other bridge.

    Nor do you want to slow down going through Memphis, especially the route of the detour. I know from experience. First they stole my youth. I got out before I lost anything else.
