Georgia Department of Transportation approves location and design for bridge on Lee Street

The Georgia Department of Transportation (Georgia DOT) has approved the location and design of Project #0013752 for Sumter County, a project that would replace the bridge along Georgia 377 that spans the Genesee & Wyoming Inc. Railroad crossing, Structure ID # 261-0040-0 and is located in Americus, Sumter County, Georgia. The design and location were approved on Jan. 29, 2021.

The existing bridge was built in 1911. The project is approximately 0.1 miles long and is in Land District 27.

The project proposes a new 55-foot long by 60-foot wide bridge containing two 17-foot travel lanes and 11-foot sidewalks to be built along the existing alignment that meets current LRFD loading requirements. Traffic will be staged utilizing an off-site detour.
