Work setting bridge beams will begin tonight on Interstate 20, requiring inside lane closures in both directions at the Augusta Canal.

According to a press release from Georgia Department of Transportation, Superior Construction will work the nights of March 1, 3 and 15 to place beams on a section of the bridge.

Work hours begin between 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. and end the next morning between 6 p.m. and 7 p.m., the release says.

“This activity uses a 'Mi-Jack' crane to load and unload the large construction items. Inside eastbound and westbound lanes closures ensure the traveling public's safety,” the release says.
