Brown Bridge Road
Reason for Improvements
Newton County is seeking to improve Brown Bridge Road between Crowell Road and State Route 162 to reduce traffic and increase safety.
This three-mile stretch of road is currently two lanes with ditches and no sidewalks. The average daily traffic (ADT) is 17,686 vehicles per day, the highest traffic among Newton County-owned roads. The ADT is predicted to rise o 20,000 vehicles per day in two years.
Between 2015-17 there have been 275 crashes, with the majority being rear-end incidents.
