Newnan/Hubbard Street Bridge Reconstruction Project to Start

The Florida Department of Transportation will soon begin a $1.5 million project to reconstruct and replace the Newnan/Hubbard Street Bridge over Hogan’s Creek, located next to Confederate Park in the Springfield Historic District.

A complete bridge and road closure is scheduled for the duration of the project, which is set to begin February 25. Newnan Street will be closed from Orange to Phelps streets. The detour route is Orange, Market and Phelps streets to Hubbard Street.

The Henry J. Klutho-designed bridge, built in 1929, is eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places. As part of the reconstruction project, architecturally significant features of the bridge will be removed and protected during construction. The project’s restoration specialist, Durable Restoration Company of Ohio, will oversee all aspects of the bridge restoration process and ensure that they meet the Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties.
