Coldwater Bridge Closes Today for Construction Work

December 13, 2012

Elbert County residents who frequently use the Coldwater Road Bridge over Little Coldwater Creek are asked to find alternate routes of travel due to the bridge being temporarily closed.

Elbert County Administrator Bob Thomas explains what type of work will be taking place on the bridge.

“Part of the problem is that the creek has been washing away the concrete embankment on one side and we have to go in and dig out and pour some more concrete”, said Thomas.

The bridge will close Thursday, December 13th at 8:00am. Thomas says the bridge is expected to be re-opened, as long as weather permits, around 4:00pm – 5:00pm on Friday, December 14th.
