Placeholder Image

PORT WENTWORTH -- In conjunction with the Hwy 21 pedestrian bridge construction in Chatham County, Massana Construction will need to install lane closures through Thursday and again Saturday morning. A detour will be in place.
Hwy 21 northbound lane closures will be utilized at Parkside Boulevard for the receiving of the main span for the pedestrian bridge starting Tuesday and Wednesday from 9 p.m. until 5 a.m. and to install concrete barriers Thursday from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.

Installation of the bridge span requires road closure at Parkside Boulevard scheduled for Saturday from 7 a.m. until 11 a.m.  Access to businesses will be maintained but all other traffic will be rerouted via Goshen Road, Hodgeville Road and Hwy 30/Montieth Road.
Message boards will alert the traveling public of the intersection closure with directional signage along detour route. The intersection will reopen to through traffic early if the work is completed ahead of schedule or could possibly be closed longer if weather delays the work.
This $3.7 million pedestrian bridge over Hwy 21 will connect Rice Creek School with Rice Creek Subdivision, improving safety for all pedestrians, which includes young children.
