That’s the question Willard Bennett, of Hazlehurst, has raised about the structure that spans across the Altamaha River. Bennett asked this reporter to go with him to take a look at the bridge a few weeks back. To the average eye, the issues with the bridge that Bennett showed to this reporter do give an appearance to cause concern.
Shown are pictures of the Altamaha River bridge on U.S. 1 North at the Appling and Toombs County Line. The photos show disturbing cracks in the structure (left) and issues with the concrete on the topside of the bridge. The Georgia Department of Transportation cites that following routine and interim inspections, the bridge is safe for all load ranges.
