The Georgia Department of Transportation announces that the new bridge on Plantation Road over Coldwater Creek in Elbert County will open today.

The bridge is expected to open to traffic by 2:00pm this afternoon.

Back on August 27th, 2012 the bridge was closed to traffic.

Originally scheduled to have been re-opened by the end of February, the Georgia DOT said in a press release that the wet weather in winter delayed the work.

The new bridge includes two travel lanes and wide shoulders for emergency lanes, compared to the old bridge which was built back in 1941 and was only one lane wide.
