Construction on Broad Avenue Bridge expected to be complete in May

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

If you've been to Downtown Albany lately you may have noticed the two sides of the new Broad Avenue Bridge are about to meet in the middle.

Construction is expected to be finished in May.

Downtown Manager Sharlene Cannon said they're excited that the major thoroughfare will open again soon.

She looks forward to the new view of the Flint River and the sidewalks on the bridge.

“It's a beautiful bridge and we look so forward to having it opened again and having the pedestrian walkways along there. The bikes can go across there, and I think people will really use the bridge and enjoy it and certainly it will be good for downtown to have that street open again,” said Sharlene Cannon, Downtown Manager.

She said they're planning a roundtable event to come up with ideas for a grand opening celebration.
