Help is on the way for our failing bridges

by The 100 Companies

Several bridges in Georgia are in bad shape. We have close to 15,000 of them in our state of which 2.5%, 374 of them, are considered structurally deficient. And more than 5,300 bridges are in fair condition, according to the American Road & Transportation Builders Association.

As part of the infrastructure bill approved by Congress in the fall, Georgia will get $225 million over five years to repair the bridges.

The most heavily traveled bridge that is structurally deficient was built in 1961 on I-75 and crosses Swamp Creek in Whitfield County. More than 66,000 motorists cross this bridge every day.
