Section 8.3 to 8.5 of the Big Creek Greenway multi-use trail will be periodically closed beginning Monday, April 17. The closure is related to the road widening project along Bethelview Road and the required bridge removal and replacement construction over the Big Creek Greenway.  

While the Georgia Department of Transportation’s contractor, CMES, Inc., completes this work, this section which passes beneath the Bethelview Road Bridge will be temporarily closed for the safety of those using the trail. The temporary closures will occur periodically for no more than three consecutive days per closure. The contractor has agreed to keep the Greenway open on the weekends, and the Engineering Department is working with the contractor to limit the number of closures. It is estimated that the project of removing and replacing the bridge to take approximately two months, weather permitting.

During a closure, signage will be placed at the bridge underpass. For the safety of Greenway users, we request that no one use this portion of trail while it is closed.

All four of the Big Creek Greenway trailheads will remain open throughout these closures.
