Single-lane closures are set for 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 20, at the Bells Mill Bridge replacement project on Cleveland Highway/U.S. 129.

Weather permitting, crews will be working on the bridge's substructure, according to the Georgia  Department of Transportation.

The project calls for replacing the old structure with a 661-foot bridge over East Fork Little River. 

The replacement is being done in tandem with the new Longstreet Bridge, which opened to traffic in January farther south on U.S. 129. DOT is tearing down the old bridge.

The $34 million bridge replacements have an overall official completion date of September 2020.
