ATLANTA – Rehabilitating the Interstate Highway 20 bridge over the Alcovy River in Newton County and building two new State Route 32 bridges across the Flint River between Lee and Worth counties in southwest Georgia highlight 14 transportation infrastructure improvements throughout the state announced today by the Department of Transportation.
The Newton County work will replace the decks on both the east and westbound I-20 spans, make other repairs and repaint the two structures. The project will cost $6.8 million and will be conducted by Massana Construction, Inc., of Tyrone, GA. Work will begin this fall and will require lane closures and traffic shifts on I-20; details will be provided well in advance of implementation. Completion is scheduled for the end of next June.
In Lee and Worth counties, the SR 32 Flint River Bridge replacement project also will begin this fall and is scheduled for completion by November 30, 2015. Southern Concrete Construction Co., Inc., of Albany, will perform the $9.7 million job.
Also, resurfacing some 77 miles of highways in nine counties is included in Georgia DOT’s newest work, cumulatively valued at approximately $40 million.
