The rainy weather over the past couple of weeks might have slowed the contractor building the McIntosh Rd bridge over the Flint River, but it has not prevented him from completing the concrete bridge deck on the span from Fayette to Spalding County. The picture below shows the completed deck, soaked from recent rains. A 10’ section on the Spalding County side still is covered in plastic to prevent the newly poured concrete from being damaged by the falling rain. The contractor has yet to form around rebar and pour the outer barrier rails. The rebar for the rails are in place and can be seen on either side of the bridge deck. Earthwork has not begun on the approaches to the bridge from Fayette or Spalding Counties. There is still plenty of work yet to accomplish, but during good weather, the contractor is managing to deliver welcome milestones.
