More lane closures planned as Boling Bridge work continues
Lane closures on Boling Bridge will take place from 7 p.m. Tuesday to 6 a.m. Wednesday and 7 p.m. Wednesday to 6 a.m. Thursday as part of work on a replacement for the bridge.

Overnight single-lane closures are set this week as work continues on the Boling Bridge replacement on Dawsonville Highway/Ga. 53 at the Hall-Forsyth county line.

The closures will take place from 7 p.m. Tuesday to 6 a.m. Wednesday and 7 p.m. Thursday to 6 a.m. Friday, according to the Georgia Department of Transportation. There is a day off from the lane closures due to the forecast of rain Wednesday.

Flagging operators will direct traffic on both sides of the bridge, or between Dogwood Path and Little Hall Park.

Crews are set to install temporary concrete barrier walls and pour another substructure support for the new bridge.

DOT asks drivers to slow to 35 mph in the work zone.

Scott Bridge Co., of Opelika, Ala., is handling the $20 million project, which calls for construction of the new bridge next to the current bridge, then demolition of the current bridge. The project is scheduled for a March 31, 2019, completion.
