MILTON, Ga. — Members of Milton's City Council and staff joined residents Aug. 3 in cutting the ribbon to open the Cogburn Road bridge.
The bridge has been closed since May 19 and opened at 4 p.m. to the public. Cogburn Road had been closed so the bridge over Cooper Sandy Creek between Bethany Bend and Webb Road could be replaced.
The $478,000 project was timed specifically to coincide with summer break, and improvements at the Cogburn Road/Bethany Bend intersection were completed just as Cambridge High School is ready to start classes this week.
A Milton Public Works Department spokeswoman said drivers should be aware of sidewalk construction that will continue on the shoulders, even though the road will be open to traffic.
"Please use extreme caution in the work zone," said Angie Kapijimpanga, a public works citizen responder.
