Road Damage in Montgomery Co
Monday, 06 April 2009
 April 6-- Montgomery County sustained some minor damages during the recent heavy rain
 and river flooding which led to several road closings.
 A preliminary damage assessment revealed that around 115 miles of county dirt road
 will need some degree of repair. Two road culverts were completely washed out resulting
 in the closing of those roads.
 Dead River Rd. has experienced flooding from the Oconee River and is also currently closed.
 Several residences are affected by flood waters at this time. The river is currently at 19 ft. and
 is forecast to remain at this level at least through the remainder of this week. The current
 forecast does not indicate any more rise in the level.
 Montgomery County Emergency Management Director John Neff said, “We are monitoring the 
situation with the river very closely and are working with the residents in the area to keep
 them informed of any changes in the river forecast.”
