Truck strikes Concord Covered Bridge

MABLETON, Ga. -- A UHaul panel truck struck the Concord Covered Bridge along Concord Road Monday afternoon.

The one-lane bridge has a low-clearance of about 7-feet for vehicles traversing the structure. The bridge crosses Nickajack Creek in Mableton. A second bridge about a quarter-mile east of that point, while not covered, is also a single-lane bridge over the Silver Comet Trail.

Cobb County police said the truck was headed westward from the Smyrna side of the bridge when it hit a safety beam which struck the structural portion of the bridge.

The roadway runs between Mableton and Smyrna through the Covered Bridge Historic District.

No word from police as to how soon it will be cleared from the area. No injuries have been reported.
