Oglethorpe Bridge (SR 520/US 280/Victory Drive Bridge over the Chattahoochee) Replacement Location and Design Public Information Open House

Georgia DOT has posted information at

www.dot.ga.gov/AboutGDOT/PublicOutreach related to the proposed bridge replacement on State Route (SR) 520/US280 over the Chattahoochee River. This project proposes to replace the existing bridge structure along SR 520/US 280 over the Chattahoochee with dual concrete beam bridges. The bridges would be stage constructed to maintain four lanes of traffic during construction. No offsite detour would be needed. The purpose of this internet posting is to replace an in-person meeting, while allowing the public to review the proposed project, provide feedback, or write in with questions.
