Construction Continues on I-20 West This Weekend

ATLANTA -- GDOT officials said they plan to continue the emergency project to replace failing bridge joints on two I-20 bridges west of Atlanta, with work concentrating this weekend on the Sweetwater Creek bridge.

The $5.1 million project includes replacement of the bridge joints and deck rehabilitation on that bridge as well as the bridge over the Chattahoochee River. The project work will happen in the overnight hours and on weekends, but the contractor is required by GDOT to keep at least two lanes open at all times.

"We expect some delays around the project area," said GDOT Area Engineer Michael Hill.

Work will continue on the project thorugh the projected completion date of April 30, 2011. The work will run from 9 p.m. Friday night through 5 a.m. Monday each weekend.
