Scheduled Repairs Next Week on State Route 316 Bridge Southbound at Interstate 85 Merge

PRESS RELEASE FROM GEORGIA'S DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION

UPDATE: From Gwinnett GDOT

Georgia Department of Transportation maintenance crews will work next Monday February 6, 2017 to complete the repairs to the State Route 316 bridge that merges traffic onto Interstate 85 southbound.

Recently the concrete that connects the roadway to the bridge has settled. Initial repairs have been completed but final work to seal the expansion joint, or the joint that allows the concrete to expand and contract based on temperatures, will take place Monday, February 6, 2017 from 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

This work will require a right- hand lane closure on the bridge. Drivers need to be alert while traveling the 316 bridge as the single lane closure will cause delays.
