Bridge construction continues

Bridge construction continues

Construction on a new Highway 32 bridge is now 33 percent complete.

Georgia Department of Transportation crews have been working since last year to build a wider and stronger bridge to accommodate heavier traffic.  The current bridge, which connects Lee and Worth Counties, is nearly 60 years old.

The project will cost about $9.7 million and is expected to be completed around this time next year.
