WINDER, Ga.,-Tonight at 8 p.m. traffic will be controlled on the State Route 53 bridge over the Mulberry River by a temporary traffic signal.
This signal will be in effect every weekend beginning Friday nights at 8 p.m. until Monday mornings at 6 a.m. as crews work to rehabilitate the bridge that carries SR 53 traffic over the Mulberry River. The temporary signal will be set up on either side of the bridge and operate similar to a flagging operation allowing one side of the bridge’s traffic to cross the bridge at a time.
Weekend work will continue for the next several months and drivers need to plan ahead when traveling this way during the weekends.
This bridge rehabilitation project consists of the following items: joint replacement, bridge driving surface preservation, concrete repairs in the bridge’s structure and painting portions of the bridge’s support beams.
Comanche Construction of Georgia, LLC was awarded the project in April 2020 and has a scheduled completion date of November 30, 2021
