Since the bridge deck has been poured, the contractor has shifted his focus from the bridge itself to McIntosh Road approaching the bridge. As seen in the attached picture, the contractor is bringing in dirt to fill up to the elevation of the bridge. Once the fill has been placed to the proper elevation, the contractor will pour a concrete approach slab for a smooth transition from the road surface to the bridge surface. As can be seen in the picture, taken looking towards Brooks, the dirt is almost at the proper elevation. The approach slab will be poured on the Fayette County side early next week. The dirt roadway will be covered in base rock and wait for asphalt. McIntosh Road, on the Spalding County side of the bridge already has an approach slab and roadway covered in base rock. There still needs to be some concrete work done on the bridge itself, but it looks like the contractor is working hard to meet his September delivery date.
Beginning Tuesday, August 1, Lees Mill Road will be closed to thru traffic for pipe replacement work at Tar Creek. The road is scheduled to reopen on or before Monday, October 2nd.
Please contact Fayette County at 770-320-6010 or firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.

After attempts to deliver through the United States Postal Service and attempts to discover the taxpayer’s current mailing address, the attached Assessment Notice List for tax year 2017 is hereby posted.
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.
