ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Georgia Department of Transportation says that crews are currently working a number of road closures due to debris, downed trees and affected traffic signals.

These routes may be closed two hours or longer depending on how quickly the first responders remove the down trees and the utility service crews resets the power pole & lines that are down across the state routes and restore the power to the signal.

  • US 41/State Route 7 Lowndes county MP 0.1 – both lanes blocked with trees and power lines down across the road
  • US 319/State Route 35 Colquitt county MP 8.75 – Passable, but signal down and not working
  • State Route 270 Mitchell county MP 1 – both lanes blocked, tree down across the road with accident

Motorists are reminded of the hazards of being on the roads during inclement weather that potentially includes high winds, flash flooding, the possibility of downed trees and possible road and bridge closures.

The public is advised to not drive around barricades that are in place for motorist’s safety and to treat non-operational signals as a four-way stop.
