Beginning Wednesday, February 13, crews will begin a year-long bridge replacement project on State Route 61 in Murray County, Georgia. 

The existing bridge over CSX Railroad was built in 1962 and is in poor condition. 

Booger Branch Road will be closed to through traffic from US 411 to Booger Branch Road Spur. Local traffic will still have access to the road.

“We understand that work on replacing this bridge may cause some inconvenience and delays. But upon completion, this project will help improve the flow of traffic in the area, make it safer and help the public get where they need to go in Murray County,” said Grant Waldrop, district engineer at the Georgia DOT office in Cartersville.

This bridge replacement project is scheduled to be completed by the end of March 2020 at a construction cost of $4,036,947.
