LONG recently completed a bridge project in Elbert County for CR 313/Fork Road at Deep Creek. This project was part of the Low Impact Bridge Program (LIBP) for GDOT. William Bamberg, P.E., one of our transportation engineers, headed this pursuit. Services included replacing the existing structurally deficient posted bridge on CR 313 (Fork Creek Road) over Deep Creek. The existing typical section consisted of two, 7- to 8-foot dirt travel lanes with minimal shoulders and was replaced with two, 9- to 10-foot travel lanes with 4-foot shoulders and rural side ditches. The bridge was replaced along the existing alignment. The new single-span bridge is 60 feet long and 30 feet wide and includes a new guardrail.
