Lee Co. closes part of Parkway

LEE CO., GA (WALB) -

Lee County Public Works will close a portion of Oakland Parkway between Palmyra Road and Oakland Farms will be closed starting at 6:00 Friday, and running through the weekend.  

It is the second time in a week the road will be closed so that crews can pump water alongside the road.  

There are no homes in the area that is closed but people traveling from U.S. 82 to Leesburg will need to find another way this weekend.    

"The ground is so saturated that we are at the point where any rain that comes in here is running off the top," Lee Co. Public Works Director Mike Sistrunk.

Crews had to close Oakland Parkway for several hours last Friday to pump out water covering the road.

The road should reopen Monday.
