AUGUSTA ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT:
PROJECT: BERCKMANS RD. WIDENING AND BRIDGE REPLACEMENT OVER RAE’S CREEK
CONTRACTOR: REEVES CONSTRUCTION COMPANY – will begin work on the Berckmans Road Phase II construction project this coming Monday, April 22, 2019. The initial work will be isolated to the Ingleside Drive, Willow Creek Drive, Berckmans Road intersection and the existing bridge over Raes Creek. Reeves Construction will be flagging traffic in the vicinity of the intersection and bridge to remove the sidewalk on and adjacent to the bridge on the northbound side of Berckmans Road in preparation for shifting traffic to facilitate the construction of the new bridge over Raes Creek.The travel lanes over the existing bridge will be narrowed into ten foot wide lanes (one northbound and one southbound); traffic will be shifted eastward to allow for the installation of temporary traffic barrier on the bridge along the southbound lane. The sidewalks will be closed at the bridge.
The Legal Speed Limit on Berckmans Road through the project will be reduced to 25 MPH from Wicklow Drive to Wheeler Road for the safety of the traveling public and the on-site workers.
Please be cautious while traveling in the work zone.
