Chattooga County Public Works Director Lamar Canada told AM 1180 Chattooga County Radio that Neal Gap Road will remain closed until the Georgia D.O.T. completes it’s inspection of the bridge on that road.

Canada said that the pillar support structures under the bridge have been compromised due to the flooding and recent heavy rains.  The state D.O.T. is expected to give the county instructions on how the county can shore up the support for the bridge.  Canada said that after the inspection the county hopes to get the work done and the bridge open as quickly as possible.
