U.S. Rep. Hank Johnson visited the site of the I-85 bridge construction site on April 14 and said it is great to see Georgians working together to get the job done.
“The I-85 bridge rebuild is an example of what could be happening across our nation to improve our infrastructure and put people to work with good-paying jobs, which helps invigorate our economy,” Johnson said.

Johnson and Woodall are members of the House Transportation and Infrastructure committee.
“The I-85 bridge rebuild is an example of what could be happening across our nation to improve our infrastructure and put people to work with good paying jobs, which helps invigorate our economy,” Johnson, D-Ga., said. “It is great to see Georgians out here working and getting the job done.”
