The Georgia Department of Transportation and construction partner Vertical Earth have been working on replacing a culvert Hwy. 306/Keith Bridge Road since June 1. GDOT officials say the plan is to reopen the road to traffic by this afternoon or early evening.
A culvert is a drainage structure primarily used to carry water through embankments to facilitate water flow. Culverts can be used to relieve drainage or to redirect water under a road to reduce the effects of erosion.
