Franklin and Williamson County first responders have set up a temporary command center following last week’s deadly tanker truck explosion.

Officials will have equipment and cots set up inside the Williamson County Ag Expo Park for the next 90 days or until a new bridge to carry Peytonsville Road over I-65 in constructed.

The new emergency location will allow crews quicker access to those living along I-65 North.

Officials said first responders frequently used Peytonsville Road when responding to emergencies.

The bridge was torn down last weekend after the tanker collided with a support beam and burst into flames.

The driver of the truck, 67-year-old Bobby Bobo, was killed in the fiery wreck.
