Construction begins for bridge replacement in Miller County

Georgia Department of Transportation news release

MILLER COUNTY, GA - The Georgia Department of Transportation is beginning construction on the replacement of one bridge on S. R. 91 over Dry Creek. Funding is provided through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), and was awarded to Southern Concrete Construction Company for $1,956,969.84.

This federal stimulus project includes construction of a bridge and approaches on S. R. 91 over Dry Creek and is expected to be completed by winter 2010.

A temporary bridge will be built parallel to the existing bridge. This temporary bridge should be completed by the end of January 2010. Traffic will be temporarily shifted to allow for the demolition and construction of the permanent bridge and approaches.

Motorists are advised to slow down and use extra caution in the construction work zone.

The Georgia Department of Transportation is committed to providing a safe, seamless and sustainable transportation system that supports Georgia's economy and is sensitive to both its citizens and its environment. Additional transportation revenues are imperative to grow and sustain Georgia's economic vitality and quality of life through the 21st Century. 

Georgia is the 3rd fastest-growing state in the nation, yet 49th in per capita spending on transportation.  For general information on the Georgia DOT, please visit our Web site (www.dot.ga.gov).
