Work will begin Friday night at 11 p.m. and end at 4 a.m. Saturday morning.

Starting Monday night Jan 21, guardrail repair installation at the Spout Springs Road bridge will necessitate closing one northbound lane between Hamilton Mill Road in Gwinnett County and SR 211 in Barrow County.

The Spout Springs Road bridge over I-85 will close to traffic Monday for approximately 180 days as crews replace the structure. Temporary signals will be placed at the intersections of Flowery Branch Road and SR 124 and Spout Springs Road and Flowery Branch Road to detour traffic around the work zone. Drivers are advised to obey posted speed limits and traffic control measures inside the project limits.
