Baker and Columbia County
east of I-75 (Exit 296) to US 90 (Exit 324) has been reopened to all eastbound
and westbound traffic as of 11 a.m. today. Use caution in the area as the water
is up to edge of the travel lanes in places and debris may float out of the
woods alongside the roadway.
- SR 121 at the Georgia line is closed because of Georgia bridge closure.
- SR 18 east of Worthington Springs to Brooker is closed.
- SR 47 at Mill Road is closed.

detoured to US 90 and County Roads 119 and 121 which is a 13-mile long detour.

252 and just south of the landfill is closed. Partial closure at McMillan Dairy and 2.5 miles south of McAlpin.
If the road ahead is flooded, turn around and find an alternate route. Flooded
roads may hide the fact that the roadway is washed out underneath and as little
as six inches of rushing water can force your car off the road.
