Cheshire Bridge Design/Build Procurement Underway
Prospective contractor bids due on February 1, 2022
With demolition complete, the City of Atlanta Department of Transportation (ATLDOT) is currently accepting bids for the design and rebuild of the Cheshire Bridge over South Fork Peachtree Creek. Bids from prospective contractors are due on Tuesday, February 1, 2022.
The bridge has been closed to all modes of transportation since August 2021, when a fire severely compromised its safety and efficacy. Demolition was completed in December 2021.
Next steps toward construction include bid evaluation, contractor recommendation, and contract execution. ATLDOT will share additional information as the procurement process moves forward.
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.
