AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) -- Work will be taking place Tuesday on the Fifth Street Bridge over the Savannah River in downtown Augusta.

With crews conducting repairs and making improvements, the bridge will be closed and all traffic will be detoured to Gordon Highway.

Augusta leaders say once it’s done, you’ll see shaded benches, phone-charging stations and landscaping. The work is expected to take about a year and a half.
