County Road Condition Report

As of approximately 4 a.m., county roads all appeared passable.

ConnectLocal.News spoke with Stephens County 911/Emergency Management Director Danielle Rhodes just moments ago, and she told ConnectLocal.News that their road superintendent has been out driving the county-maintained roads, checking locations that are normal problem areas in heavy rains, and reported that "all roads looked good."

However, ConnectLocal.News has received reports from several citizens that a section of Hwy. 123 is closed near the Georgia Baptist Conference Center, as well as reports of Blackberry Farm Road being underwater.

The EMS review of roads this morning did not include Hwy. 123, as that is a state road, Rhodes said, but added that the state normally advises EMS of road closures on state roads, and they had received no notification about Hwy. 123. She also said that Blackberry Farm Road was not inundated with water as of last night. She told ConnectLocal.News that she would seek information on both Hwy. 123 and Blackberry Farm Road, and let us know of any further information. We will update this story as new information becomes available.

Please avoid driving if possible, and if you must be on the road, drive cautiously and remain alert.
