After weeks of construction, a road closure and some delay getting the proper cranes to make it happen, the city of Cumming's new bridge connecting the Cumming Fairgrounds with a parking lot across Castleberry Road was installed late Monday evening.


Flex-Fab, Inc. handled the bridgework, while Vertical Earth did grading and concrete for the $1.75-million project.
