Cheshire Bridge Road NE from Faulkner Road NE to Wellbourne Drive NE remains closed to all traffic until further notice.  We thank the community for its patience as the Atlanta Department of Transportation (ATLDOT) has assessed the fire damage to the bridge over the CSX railroad on Cheshire Bridge Road.  ATLDOT has successfully collaborated with various agencies and partners in a coordinated effort to develop a design and construction strategy for repairing and reopening the bridge.

Please see below the latest updates on the progress of repair efforts.
