Contractors have placed 5 - 143’ long and 6’ high concrete beams that form the basis of the connection of Fayette and Spalding County across the Flint River. This is a major milestone in the construction of the long awaited reconstruction of the McIntosh Road Bridge. The contractor is now working toward the concrete deck (driving surface). They are also working on forming bridge over hangs for parapet walls. Hopefully, weather permitting, next month’s update will show good progress on rebar placement for the concrete bridge deck. Pictures were taken from the Spalding County side of the river.
