Road repairs ongoing after heavy May rains
McEver Road stretch battered by floods may reopen Friday
Portions of the failed culvert rest Thursday morning on McEver Road near where crews are building a new culvert after heavy rains in May washed out a portion of the road. Above average rainfall this summer has slowed down repairs.
A well-traveled stretch of McEver Road between Oakwood and Flowery Branch is set to reopen as scheduled Friday in South Hall, nearly 2 1/2 months after torrential rain devastated the area. Work on a double-box culvert was completed earlier this month, but excavated material from the site has been too wet to compact as backfill around the culvert, City Manager Stan Brown said. "Weather has had a major impact on the project," he said.
