Finance Chooses Partner for Canal Bridge

The County finance committee will recommend to the full commission awarding a $1.6 million contract to Underground Excavating, Inc. of Patterson to build a bridge on the Glynco Parkway across  the Altamaha Canal. Currently the Canal flows under the Parkway through a 72 inch culvert which was overtopped during Hurricane Matthew. The ground will not support the weight of a box culvert so a four lane bridge will be built.
