The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) announced the indefinite closure of a bridge over the Alcovy River is after a failed inspection on Monday.
The inspection team found extensive corrosion where steel pilings meet a concrete bent cap on the County Road 213 bridge, according to 11 Alive News.
The bridge, which is located about four miles south of Covington near the CR 213 intersection with Highway 36, is closed until further notice.
The agency will provide a detour for drivers until the county performs maintenance work on the structure, and GDOT said their crews are planning to re-inspect the bridge before it opens to traffic again.
