ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Lee County officials say Oakland Road between U.S. 82 and Palmyra Road is closed until further notice.

Chief Deputy Lewis Harris with the Lee County Sheriff's Office made the announcement Friday. Anyone that uses those roadways to pick up children from school must find an alternative route.

Crews said water has covered the road again from recent rains. They are working to pump the water away, but said the process could take several hours.
