Hurricane Closings

The Talmadge Bridge linking Georgia and South Carolina will close at 9pm tonight (Wednesday). 

The predicted strength of the wind at the bridge elevation will render vehicles susceptible to incidents. Motorists attempting to navigate vehicles across the bridge in conditions with the high wind levels anticipated from Hurricane Michael may not be able to properly control the vehicles. The bridge is being closed for the safety of the public. An extensive inspection of the Talmadge Bridge must be performed after Hurricane Michael passes therefore the closure will remain in place until further notice. Evacuees should allow themselves extra time to reroute due to bridge closure; remain patient; and exercise caution in their travels.
