Lane closure on Browns Bridge Road on Wednesday

There will be a lane closure this evening on Browns Bridge Road as crews continue work on a project to replace the bridge.

Officials with Georgia Department of Transportation said the closure and traffic shift will start tonight at 7 p.m. and continue until 6 a.m. on Thursday.

The project has a scheduled completion in April 2020. The project length is 0.805 miles and will replace the current bridge over Lake Lanier.

The new bridge will have two 12-foot lanes with 8-foot shoulders. The construction contract for this project represents a $27 million investment.
