Interstate Access Road traffic impacts expected next week
Frontage Road bridge testing to affect traffic at Yellow River near I-20

COVINGTON, Ga. - Contractor scheduled soil bore testing will begin at Access Road (Interstate-20 Frontage Road) for the upcoming Yellow River bridge project.

Crews will enter the roadway Thursday, June 6 and Friday, June 7 as well as returning the next week June 10 through June 12. General work hours are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., weather permitting. 

Drivers should expect lane closures as crews move about the area. Given the proximity to major highways, alternate routes are suggested.

The bridge replacement is currently scheduled to go out for bids in December 2020 with construction to begin in 2021. This project will require an off-site detour using the interstate and exits 88 and 90 in Newton County.
