City of Helen 100 years

We are excited that the new pedestrian bridge is finally in place. We have had a number of people asking when it will be opened to traffic. The concrete has been poured, but it has to have a certain amount of time to set. On Thursday, April 19, a strength test will be conducted. If the concrete passes the hardening test, it will be opened. If not, it will have to set for seven more days, and will open a week later on Thursday, April 26. We are also eager for the opening of the bridge, and thank you for your patience. If you have any questions, please call City Hall at 706-878-2733 between 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Monday - Friday.
