Upcoming Construction: Mt. Vernon Highway Bridge

Watch for work crews around Mount Vernon Bridge this summer as the first major element of the Transform 285/400 improvement project gets underway. Georgia Department of Transportation (Georgia DOT) construction partners began utility relocations around the Mount Vernon Highway bridge over SR 400 in May.


Five Things You Need to Know:

  1. Contractors will widen Mount Vernon Highway bridge from two to four lanes.
  2. The new lanes on the north side will be built alongside the existing bridge. Later, traffic will shift to the new bridge and the southern side of the bridge will be constructed.
  3. A new median will separate the lanes on Mount Vernon Highway from Barfield Road to Crestline Parkway.
  4. The bridge will remain open with periodic daytime and nighttime closures on Mount Vernon Highway and SR 400.
  5. Pedestrian access will be maintained throughout construction and the new bridge will have 10-foot wide sidewalks on each side and five-foot-wide bike lanes.
