GDOT Moves 299 Bridge Replacement to May 13 Weekend

Stop the presses! Things have changed.

Earlier in the day, The Planet reported that the Georgia Department of Transportation would replace the Highway 299 bridge on I-24 the weekend of May 5-7, coinciding with the Dade County Sheriff's benefit May 6. Major Tommy Bradford, chief deputy, confirmed that GDOT had announced the date to the department a week or two earlier, and discussed with The Planet whether the coincidence would affect law enforcement in Dade.

But late in the afternoon, GDOT's Andrew Hoenig emailed as follows:

"The weekend is currently scheduled for May 13/14, weather dependent."

The weekend of May 13-14 coincides with another important Dade event, the Art and Craft Celebration at Cloudland Canyon--but as far as The Planet knows should have less impact on local law enforcement.

Hoenig confirmed that a scheduled public information meeting about the bridge replacement would in fact take place at 4 p.. next Thursday, April 27, at North Georgia Worship Center.

The public is welcome, and Hoenig and his staff will be present to answer any questions.
