CURRENT PROJECTS & INFORMATION

ROGERS BRIDGE PROJECT

EXCITING NEWS FLASHThe City of Duluth, in partnership with the City of Johns Creek, Gwinnett County and Fulton County installed a large section of the new pedestrian bridge at Rogers Bridge Park on June 10, 2022.

The newly placed truss is the same 228’ in length as the original, with a similar design. However, the new model is significantly heavier weighing in at 287,000 lbs. The original truss was a mere 170,000 lbs in comparison. The truss was prefabricated and then welded and assembled on-site. Assembly took two weeks and 47 loads tractor-trailer loads of truss pieces.

Once it was ready to be installed, an 825-ton Demag Crawler with 1.4 million lbs. of counterweights was required to safely move the massive structure into its final home over the Chattahoochee River. You can see the video of the setting below.

Rogers Bridge is on the move! On Monday, October 11, 2021 the existing Rogers Bridge was removed from its location over the Chattahoochee River. You can see the video of the removal below.
 
Should you have any questions related to these operations, please contact the City’s Engineer directly at mpozin@duluthga.net. Rogers Bridge is located at 4291 Rogers Bridge Road, Duluth, GA 30097.

Notice to the Public
For the safety of the public, certain sections of the park including but not limited to the canoe launch, the pavilions, the restrooms, and the playground will be closed to the public during some or all of the preconstruction and construction durations.  We will be updating this page as construction evolves.
