Heavy rains cause road closures in Hall County


Listen to this article.

Heavy rains continue to pour down throughout the state, causing road closures. Hall County provided an update Monday evening on the status of several roads, some of which are closed and some that have reopened.

Claude Parks Road from Old Dahlonega Highway to Jake Kemp Road was closed until further notice Monday following a period of heavy rains.

Claude Parks Road is just the latest Hall County roadway to be shut down in recent days due to significant rainfall. Both Lawson Road and Calvary Church Road remain closed due to hazardous conditions caused by heavy rains Thursday.

Hall County officials closed Belton Bridge Road and Bryant Quarter Road late Thursday evening; however, both of those roadways were reopened early Friday morning.

Rufus Bryant Road at its intersection with Stowers Road was also closed for a time Thursday night due to downed trees blocking the roadway. That blockage has also since been cleared.
