ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

(Albany, GA) -- As of Wednesday, the majority of roads on Chickasawhatchee WMA are closed due to flooding, and will remain so for the time being.   

Chickasawhatchee was hit with as much as a foot of rain, according to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources' Wildlife Resources Division.

The following access points are closed:

  • Mud Creek at Hwy. 62
  • Pine Island just south of the shooting range
  • All gates off Chickasawhatchee Rd. (Calhoun Co. Dirt Road)
  • The only exception is Bull Pen Road which remains open

Personnel believe that flooded roads will be able to open after Feb. 20, once they are determined to be safe and passable.
