Cheshire Bridge Demolition is Complete!
Bridge Access Remains Restricted Until Rebuild Is Finished
The City of Atlanta Department of Transportation (ATLDOT) is pleased to announce demolition of the Cheshire Bridge over South Fork Peachtree Creek has been completed as scheduled.
The bridge has been closed to all modes of transportation since August 2021, when a fire severely compromised its safety and efficacy. Demolition work began nearly four (4) weeks ago and has steadily progressed without major obstacles. Crews will continue to remove demolition debris from the area through the end of the week.
Currently, the procurement process is underway, with the bridge rebuild estimated to begin in the first quarter of 2022.
ATLDOT reminds the public that pedestrians are restricted from entering the bridge construction zone until the demolition and rebuild are complete. For your safety, please do not enter the creek bed, sloping, and fenced off bridge areas on either side of the creek.
Cheshire Bridge Rebuild updates are available on the ATLDOT website (atldot.atlantaga.gov). Stay engaged with ATLDOT on our Twitter feed @ATLDOT, ATLDOT Facebook page, Instagram channel @ATL.DOT, and NextDoor platforms.
