Buckeye Road bridge closing Oct. 4

EAST DUBLIN - The Buckeye Road bridge over Buckeye Creek, one mile south of the Johnson County line, will close Monday, Oct. 4 to begin a $1.772 million replacement contract for 0.123 miles of new approaches and a modern bridge.

Gregory Bridge Company construction work requires a 120-day road closure. Once in place, the local detour for this project uses New Buckeye Road, Robert Plummer Road, Watermelon Road and State Route 57.

GDOT helps local governments reduce the number of posted and closed bridges throughout the state using different replacement programs. Each bridge has structural issues and will be brought up to modern design standards. These projects typically require a 90 to 120-day detour once under construction.
