Bridge Replacement on State Route (SR) 83 over Polecat Creek

In keeping with Governor Brian Kemp’s directive to keep state government agencies

functioning as Georgia combats the COVID-19 pandemic, Georgia DOT is moving forward by

placing project information for review and feedback into an internet platform to comply with social

distancing and avoiding crowds of 10+ people. We appreciate your participation in this process.

Georgia DOT has posted information related to the proposed Bridge Replacement on

State Route (SR) 83 over Polecat Creek at

This project proposes to replace the existing bridge on SR 83 over Polecat Creek in Walton

County, Georgia. This project is needed because the existing bridge is deteriorating and does not

meet current structural design standards. The bridge would be replaced on existing alignment

and would require a 38-mile offsite detour for approximately 45 days during construction. Georgia

DOT is seeking feedback about the proposed project and offsite detour.

The purpose of this internet posting is to replace an in-person meeting, while allowing the

public to review the proposed project, provide feedback, or write in with questions.
