Brunswick bridge to close
N05C1200 [Converted].jpg
The Georgia Department of Transportation announced the closure of the Sidney Lanier Bridge on  US 17/SR 25 in Glynn County at 6 p.m. Wednesday in anticipation of gale-force winds from Hurricane Michael.

The predicted strength of the wind at the bridge elevation will render vehicles susceptible to incidents.  Motorists attempting to navigate vehicles across the bridge in conditions with the high wind levels anticipated from Hurricane Michael may not be able to properly control the vehicles.  The bridge is being closed for the safety of the public. 

An extensive inspection of the Sidney Lanier Bridge must be performed after Hurricane Michael passes therefore the closure will remain in place until further notice. 

Evacuees should allow themselves extra time to reroute due to bridge closure; remain patient; and exercise caution in their travels.
