Rain subsides and roads open

Pike County Public Works are happy to see the sun today. Announcing all the roads in the county (save Dripping Rock) are again open, it seem the region has beat mother nature again. Yesterday, Old Zebulon (west of Cook’s Road), Bankston (between Vega and Maddox), Cooks, Hunter and Fossett near Roberts Quarters were closed off. The Dripping Rock Road bridge over Elkins Creek at the Upson County lines has been closed since Sunday. The Flint River, though elevated, had not breached its banks. The road department had personnel on the roads to ensure they were passable and crews placed additional gravel on some dirt roads for better traction. The rain is expected to continue through Monday, according the a National Weather Service forecaster. Approximately five inches of rain has fallen since Wednesday. The Griffin office of the Georgia Forestry Commission reported over 10 inches of rain has fallen over the past four weeks.
