DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) -

Dougherty County engineers have okayed all repairs from damage caused by a natural gas pipeline installation last year, when Sabal Trail buried miles of gas pipeline across the county.

Several crossroads were damaged by heavy equipment and construction, but Sabal Trail made good on their promise to make the necessary repairs.

WALB checked the intersection at Lockett Station Road and Oakridge Blvd., where the main line is buried.

Today, you can see visible gas markers, and well as pecan trees.

Dougherty County's Public Works Director Larry Cook said the landowner planted the trees and Sabal made other repairs to restore the area.

Cook described the various Sabal Trail repairs across the county as "first class."

 All of the areas have been inspected and approved by the county's engineers.
