The replacement of the bridge over the railroad tracks on South Cherokee is on schedule to be completed in October or November this year. The old bridge has been completely torn out and crews are preparing the earthwork and forms for supports for the new bridge.
The bridge is being replaced because it was structurally unsound. The new bridge is being built to current DOT specifications and will be taller and wider. There will be sidewalks and a decorative wrought iron fence on both sides.
For questions on the bridge construction, please contact Public Works Director, Barry Parsons. 770-464-6912, firstname.lastname@example.org.
