According to the Georgia Department of Transportation, drivers should plan for 30-day continuous lane closure starting Monday, January 9 on US 80 at Bull River Bridge and then Lazaretto Creek Bridge in Chatham County. This continuous lane closure will be utilized to perform required preliminary work for the future bridge replacement projects of these two bridges.
Drivers should watch for advance warning signs, be prepared to stop and always obey traffic control devises and road crews. Law enforcement will assist with traffic control along with video surveillance to enhance safety.
The schedule is subject to change depending on weather and other factors. The roadway will reopen early if the work is completed ahead of schedule or could possibly be closed longer if weather delays the work.
