High Falls Road over 1-75 in Jackson, Georgia. The bridge closures are part of the Georgia Department of Transportation project M005670 for bridge rehabilitation. Please be aware that the High Falls Road bridge that will be closed is the road without access to 1-75, not the bridge at the 1-75 Exit 201 Interchange. The bridge will be closed to traffic and detoured on the weekends starting Friday evening April 5th, 2019 and will continue every weekend until possibly Monday morning July 1st 2019, if not sooner.   The weekly closures will begin Friday evenings at 5:00 PM until Monday mornings at 7:00 AM. The bridge will be open to through traffic during the week but could have one-lane flagging closures at times. This schedule is all weather dependent and if there happens to be inclement weather on a particular weekend, the bridge closure will not take place. Our intent is to complete the bridge work as soon as possible. Click on Link to access the MAP. GDOT Project M005670 High Falls Road Detour
