Georgia Department of Transportation – Brown Avenue Bridge

Georgia Department of Transportation’s $8.5 million project reconstructed two bridges along Brown Avenue; one over Bragg Street and another over the Norfolk Southern Railroad to improve safety and mobility while increasing access for intermodal travel. The project built the new bridges to accommodate taller emergency response vehicles, buses and heavy trucks, as well as sidewalks and pedestrian ramps to improve non-motorized travel into the neighborhood. Crews completed the project $400,000 under budget, and business owners experience better access and faster travel times to their businesses which is positioning the area for ongoing economic development.
