THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Construction began Monday on a Thomas County road that was washed out by heavy spring rain.

Springhill Road has been blocked for five months. Frustrated residents living in the area say they've had to take a six-mile detour to get around it to work.

Heavy spring rain destroyed the culvert under the road.

Monday county crews began the first stages of construction on a new bridge that should be ready by November 1st. FEMA is covering some of the cost, but most of the bridge cost will be at the county's expense.
