Lowndes County - Construction is underway on a South Georgia bridge knocked out last year by a piece of heavy machinery.

Department of Transportation workers have built new beams and are laying the bridge deck across Franks Creek Road.

Part of Interstate 75 in Lowndes County was shut down for several days after the bridge was damaged last October. An 18-wheeler carrying a piece of equipment too high for the overpass struck the beams.

"It was knocked out at the end of last October, but considering all the plan approvals and the complexity of this project, even though it's a year later, we're ahead of schedule," said Brent Dixon, Project Manager.

Construction on the bridge should be completed by December 31st.
