PIEDMONT ROAD RE-OPENS AHEAD OF SCHEDULE
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 26, 2017
Piedmont road was re-opened ahead of schedule this morning as crews continue to work overnight on the bridge. The last 12 of the 61 beams have been installed, covering the entire span of the bridge. While the road closure was not ideal for motorist and local businesses, it was a necessary measure to meet the aggressive timeline. “In terms of moving us forward to that June 15th deadline, this is a really important day for us,” said Natalie Dale, Spokeswoman for the Georgia Department of Transportation.
