The bridges are 10 miles northeast of Folkston and west of the Satilla River bridge. They were built in 1956 and have posted weight restrictions. The bridges will be dismantled and new bridges will be built at the same site, requiring a detour.
The detour is SR 40 to SR 110, but motorists can access residences in the area up to the work zone. The Burnt Fort public boat ramp will be accessible from SR 252 if traveling from Camden County.
If the weather cooperates, the $2.5 million project is expected to be complete in the spring of 2017.
“The Georgia Department of Transportation is committed to providing a safe, seamless and sustainable transportation system that supports Georgia’s economy and is sensitive to both its citizens and its environment,” said a DOT spokesman.
