New Bridges Open On Arthur Brown, Nokomis Roads

April 30, 2018

Two newly constructed bridges in the Walnut Hill area are now open.

Nokomis Road

A new prefabricated steel bridge bridge on Nokomis Road over Reedy Creek in McDavid is now open to traffic.
Construction included replacement of the bridge and bridge approaches. The new bridge is approximately 10 feet wider than the old bridge, with the addition of 5-foot shoulders on either side.  The new bridge is solid American steel with corrugated decks that are paved with asphalt after installation for several decades of service.

Due to structural deficiencies, the state ordered the old  Nokomis Road bridge closed in December.

Arthur Brown Road

Traffic on Arthur Brown Road (County Road 99A) over Boggy Creek in Walnut Hill was moved to a newly constructed bridge on Saturday. Crews will now disassemble the temporary bridge and complete miscellaneous work items. The entire project, which is near the Walnut Hill Baptist Church, is anticipated to be complete in June, weather permitting.

The new bridge includes 11-foot travel lanes, 6-foot shoulders and a solid concrete barrier railing. The bridge approaches have also been replaced.
