Living. Growing. Prospering.
Douglasville, Georgia – Douglas County Firefighter/AEMT Spencer Caradine has released the following statement after recent media attention of a heartwarming moment with his fellow co-workers was captured on video.
"The recent and overwhelming amount of attention I have received from a surprise gift by my brothers and sisters of the Douglas County Fire Department has shown me why I am proud to be a Douglas County Firefighter. As one of the youngest members of this department, this act of love, kindness, and the overwhelming aftermath from it was nothing I could have ever anticipated. I am humbled to be among many veteran firefighters who have sacrificed so much to help others and honored by their continued support. This experience has given me a much deeper understanding and respect for the "Brotherhood" of the fire service. It has also made me appreciate, even more, the sacrifice of all those who commit their lives to serving others and those who have paid the ultimate price."

LIBERTY ROAD BRIDGE CLOSURE
GDOT will be closing the Liberty Road bridge over I-20 beginning June 1st to do improvements to the bridge. The bridge work will be similar to the work GDOT performed at Post Road and several other locations along I-20. GDOT anticipates the bridge will be closed for 45 days.
The detour route will be as follows:
Vehicles on Liberty Road headed north to points north of I-20, will be directed to take I-20 east to Post Road, turn left on Post Road, cross over the bridge there and take I-20 west back to the Liberty Road/Mirror Lake Blvd interchange. They can then exit at the westbound ramp at that interchange and turn right to continue northbound on Mirror Lake Blvd.
Similarly, vehicles traveling southbound on Liberty Road to areas south of I-20 will be directed to take I-20 west to SR 61, take the westbound exit ramp, turn left on SR 61 and cross over the bridge at that location, then take I-20 east back to Liberty Road and exit at the Liberty Road interchange then turn right to proceed southbound on Liberty Road.
