LaGRANGE — The following roadways remained closed today following severe flooding last week:

• Willis Drive near Vulcan Materials Road is closed, but was expected to reopen today.

In a Facebook post today, the Troup County Sheriff’s Office and the county roads department asked for the public’s patience as the repairs may take some time.

“I expect some of the repairs could take as much as four to six months,” said James Emery, the county’s roads engineer. “We are making a lot of temporary fixes today, as many of them as we can.”
