Atlanta Hwy. (from Hardigree Road to Jackson Trail in both directions) will be closed by the Georgia Department of Transportation and rerouted until CSX can get the cars back on track.
“According to CSX and DOT, the crossings and roadway could be closed between five and 10 hours today,” said the BCSO. “We strongly recommend motorists avoid the area due to heavy delays throughout the day.”
