Dawsonville Highway drivers may encounter some nighttime delays as they cross the eastbound bridge over the Chattahoochee River.
S & D Industrial Painting of Florida is starting a project to paint the bridge’s steel structure and replace the joints, with work taking place nightly from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m., according to the Georgia Department of Transportation.
The project, which may reduce the bridge to one lane overnight, is expected to be completed in mid-January, weather permitting.
A similar “bridge preservation” project is planned to start in 2019 on the southbound Thompson Bridge Road bridge over the Chattahoochee River.
The overall work will cost $1.2 million, according to the DOT.
