The Alabama Department of Transportation completed their inspection of the Wrights Mill Road bridge over I-85 in Auburn on Monday afternoon.

ALDOT inspected the bridge and finalized plans to repair the bridge after being struck on Saturday, April 27.

At approximately 9 a.m. Tuesday, April 30, crews will begin placing signs and installing a concrete barrier at milepost 54 on I-85 North at the Wrights Mill Road bridge. The concrete barrier will be in place for the safety of the people in the work zone because the outside lane will remain closed until work is complete.

Once the barrier is in place, work will begin on the bridge.

Due to the location of the damaged part of the bridge and for the safety of crew members, Wrights Mill Road will remain closed. Travelers should seek alternate routes through City of Auburn or

The contractor, Scott Bridge Company, will work around the clock to complete repairs prior to the estimated two weeks.
