Project Description: Replace the existing steel truss bridge that carries State Route 53/Dawsonville Highway over the Chestatee River/Lake Lanier. This two-lane structure has been determined to be structurally deficient and is eligible for federal bridge replacement funding. The proposed project would include the bridge approaches and would begin at a point approximately 0.42 mile southwest of the Chestatee River and extend to a point approximately 0.41 mile northeast of the Chestatee River, for a total project length of approximately 0.83 mile. The proposed new bridge would consist of two 12-foot travel lanes with 8-foot shoulders, and the roadway approaches would be reconstructed to provide two 12-foot travel lanes and 10-foot shoulders (2-foot paved).
Project Status: Construction in FY 2016.
