RICHMOND COUNTY, Ga. (WFXG) - The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) has announced that Old Waynesboro Rd. at the Richmond County / Burke County line over McBean Creek will be closed beginning on Monday, Mar. 20, 2023. The closure is to allow for the replacement of the bridge over the creek, which has reached the end of its useful life.

The road will remain closed for approximately 160 days, during which time a detour will be in place directing traffic to Hwy 25. This detour is expected to cause some delays, and drivers are advised to plan their routes accordingly.


If any residents have questions or concerns about the project, they are encouraged to contact Augusta 311.
