According to the Georgia Department of Transportation, Thompson Mill Rd in Buford will be closed starting June 1st from Bryant Rd to Bogan Rd. The road will be closed so that the bridge spanning I-985 can be rehabilitated. This project is slated to last until July 31st.
The bridge over 985 is set to undergo rehabilitation. GDOT plans on raising the bridge to a minimum of 17 feet for clearance. This means adjusting the road bed to accommodate this drastic change.
Traffic needing to travel west on Thompson Mill Road towards Buford will be redirected to North Bogan Road, then Hamilton Mill Road, then State Route 13. Traffic traveling east along Thompson Mill Road will be directed to State Route 13, to Hamilton Mill Road then to North Bogan Road.
