It took a while for CSX Railroad to give permission, but construction of the long-awaited bridge at MacDuff Parkway and Senoia Road in Peachtree City is well underway. Weather permitting, the bridge is expected to open for traffic by early fall.

Though MacDuff Parkway is complete, extending from Kedron Drive at Ga. Highway 74 North on the north side to Ga. Highway 54 West on the south side, the bridge is the final link in the chain to be completed so that traffic can begin using the parkway.

Once opened, the residents of Wilksmoor Village on the city’s west side will have two ways in and out of the area.

When it comes to construction of the bridge, Peachtree City Manager Jon Rorie said previously that CSX announced that a flagman must be stationed at the bridge site at the parkway and Senoia Road.

While there is no defining timeline for the bridge project, Rorie said the bridge should be completed by August or September, weather permitting.

The developer bears the cost of both the parkway extension and the bridge.

The existing subdivisions in Wilksmoor Village, including one apartment complex, have a total of 1,454 units, while the three subdivisions approved for construction total 1,329 units. In total, Wilksmoor will eventually have 2,783 residential units.
