Several of the seven roads in Pike County that were closed after a deluge of rain in December have been re-opened by the Highway 109 bridge is still being repaired. County officials are calculating costs to ask for financial assistance from the state. Roads that have been re-opened, including Old Zebulon Road, Roberts Quarters Road, Dripping Rock Road, Bethany Church Road, Milwood Road and Milner Road. Campbell Road is being worked on by county employees and the Georgia Department of Transportation is working to re-open a bridge over Highway 109.Depending on rainfall, the bridge is set to reopen sometime this week. Two concrete and steel support walls were replaced as part of the repairs after water washed away much of the fill dirt beneath the bridge’s asphalt. A total of nearly 15 inches – as measured by the monitoring station in Williamson – fell in December alone, with around 4 inches of rain so far in 2016.
