Buffington Road Bridge Replacement Is Complete

ZEBULON - Buffington Road in Pike County was closed on February 15th to replace the bridge. It will take a couple of days to get the signs removed from it, but the bridge is now open to the public.

The safety rails on the bridge and coming up to the bridge are high for safety, and it looks very nice. Check it out if you're in the north side of the county. This was a Georgia Department of Transportation project.

There are pictures from February and August below this article.

From the Georgia Department of Transportation: Buffington Road at Turnpike Creek, 5 miles east of Zebulon reopens early. The roadway and detour for the work was put in place in February and the contractor had until the end of November to complete the work.

The project replaced the structurally deficient bridge while working within the existing right of way. The bridge will reopen today, Monday, November 13.

Massana Construction was the low bidder for this project at $1,115,235.
