GAINESVILLE - Georgia Department of Transportation officials Wednesday said the start of water-related work on a bridge project in Hall County has been rescheduled.

The new State Route 284 Bridge at the Lake Lanier Olympic Center is now scheduled to begin some time before Thanksgiving.

Crews are moving equipment and material to the area. Officials had expected the actual work to start next week.

"Working in the Lake preparing to drill for the new concrete support structures or caissons is very specialized. The crews doing that work cannot be in the area until later in November. These plans are tentative and are weather dependent," Harold Mull, Georgia DOT District Construction Engineer said.

In addition to the bridge, the $8.7 million dollar project includes a new pedestrian tunnel under the roadway.

Officials said the project is expected to last until December of 2015.
