ROCKDALE COUNTY, Ga. – Rockdale County Department of Transportation is holding a ribbon cutting for the newly replaced Rockbridge Road/Lake Capri Bridge. The ribbon cutting will take place on Dec. 9, 10 a.m. on Rockbridge Road and Lake Capri Bridge.
The Lake Capri Bridge project used SPLOST dollars for its completion; approximately $1.8 million of SPLOST funds went to completing the bridge.
“Rockdale Department of Transportation is proud to celebrate the completion of this eagerly anticipated project,.” Director of Transportation Brian Kelley said. “The reopening of the Rockbridge Road Bridge is a great example of “Your SPLOST Dollar at Work” and effective teamwork.”
This portion of Rockbridge Road has been closed for two years as a safety precaution due to the failure of the north bridge abutment; a structure that connects the ends of the bridge and the foundation. After replacing the structures, the bridge will be accessible following the ribbon cutting for the public.
