Bull Creek bridge replacement on SR 169 calls for detour

The Georgia Department of Transportation announced State Route (SR) 169 at Bull Creek Bridge approximately 3 miles south of Bellville and US 280 closed Monday, July 6 to thru-traffic for 120 days to replace the bridge. The bridge location is between Clyde & Edward Tucker Road and Louis Kennedy Road.

The contractor, Gregory Bridge Company, will prepare and maintain the detour around the closure, which utilizes SR 144 and US 301. Motorists will be able to access residences and businesses up to the work zone.

This project will replace the current weight restricted bridge working within existing right of way. If the weather cooperates, the project is expected to be completed this fall.
