Project Highlight of the Week


Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Parkway Bridge Replacement Project
This project consists of replacing the existing bridge culvert along Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Parkway between Ruth Drive and Strickland Avenue.  The new design includes a 14-foot wide paved multi-use path along the river side (west side) which could be connected to a future expansion of the Oconee River Greenway Network.

The MLK Parkway is currently closed to through traffic and will be re-opened on July 29th.
