Flowery Branch Road Bridge over I-85 in Buford reopens to traffic

The newly constructed Flowery Branch Road Bridge over Interstate 85 in Buford reopened to motorists June 19. Georgia Department of Transportation construction partners closed the over 50-year old bridge for 165 days for construction of the new bridge.

This bridge replacement is part of the I-85 Widening, Phase 1 project, which was the first Major Mobility Investment Program project to break ground.

The remainder of the I-85 Widening, Phase 1 project is nearing completion and should be complete in third quarter 2020. Drivers are reminded to watch for posted speed limits and traffic control measures as construction continues.
