Motorists can expect daytime lane closures on Mansell Road the next 90 days as the Roswell Department of Transportation and its contractor undertake $100,973 in repairs to the south half of the concrete deck bridge over Big Creek.

Lane closures will happen on the eastbound side of the bridge from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., according to a city announcement.

“Residents can expect delays in this area and are encouraged to consider another route,” the city said. “The (Big Creek) Greenway trail will be usable during this project with a partial lane closure. Signage will be placed near the bridge to notify pedestrians of the partial closure near the bridge.”

Crews will be painting 20 H-piles and sway bracing, providing reinforced concrete to the H-piles, taking preventative steps to control erosion, and cleaning and re-sealing all concrete decking joints. Funded by the city's bridge maintenance program, the work is intended to extend the life of the bridge. Information: https://bit.ly/3f7ePfp
