Wildcat Bridge over the Broad River on SR 281 is OPEN.
Our put-in for the UPPER section is scheduled for demolition by GDOT in the near future. This is due to the Bridge being removed and replaced. We are currently waiting on an EPD permit to allow us to build a new one further upstream. In short, we might not be able to use the UPPER section during the process of building a new river access if we haven't built the access before GDoT starts the 'destruction' of the existing bridge.
