Cobb Bridge

Passed thru the area last summer/early fall (2013) and the bridge was being worked on by a contractor. Looked as though it was being sandblasted at that time; the bridge was covered with tarps and traffic over the Chauga (Chau-gee' around here) was not allowed. Do not know the extent of the repairs/refurb will be, but will check it out with the Oconee Bridges and Roads Dept. and post an update to this comment.
