Unfortunately, Winter Storm Grayson has caused significant damage to our road infrastructure, specifically our ash roads. This is a pervasive problem that is county wide on most of the roads made from ash.
We are actively trying to find a solution. We had experts from the Portland Cement Association here (Jan. 8) to look at the roads. And we have been in contact with GEMA to seek assistance with storm damage funding for the roads.
Additionally, the Georgia Emergency Management Agency will be here (Jan. 11) to inspect the roads. Public Works is currently putting out sand in the worst areas.
Fixing many miles of damaged roads is a challenge but we hope to have a plan in place very shortly. We ask for everyone’s patience as we work through the issue.
Sincerely, Steve Davis, MPA
Effingham County administrator
