WHAT: Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) and construction partner Vertical Earth Inc., will close Hwy. 306/Keith Bridge Road for road maintenance work.
WHEN: The closure and detour begins June 1. Work is expected to be complete in late July.
WHERE: Hwy. 306/Keith Bridge Road will be blocked off at the intersection of Cantrell Circle and Burma Road. The detour will start at the intersection of Hwys. 306 and 369. Traffic will be directed west to Ga. 400 North to Hwy. 53, and end at the intersection of Hwy. 53 and Hwy. 306.
WHY: Crews will replace an underground culvert. 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.
