Thomas Co.-  Cairo Road in Thomas County is open.  Cairo Road between Highway 319 and Highway 84 was closed three weeks ago when a culvert near the Boy Scout lake began to collapse. 

Friday morning, Thomas County Public Works crews began removing their equipment from the roadway. Other repairs were made while the roadway was closed.  

"We got out the bumps that was in the road, where the cement was pushing up the asphalt, we've cut all of those out of there, the main ones there were eight of them," said Tony Bodiford, Thomas Co. Public Works Supervisor. 

On Wednesday, crews finished filling in the culvert with cement. The barricades were removed around one o'clock Friday afternoon.
