In response to the comment I just approved–if your road isn’t listed, you might want to call the Douglas County DOT.  Their # is 770.920.4924 or you can email them at cduke@co.douglas.ga.us .

This is on the Douglas County EMA page, kind of buried at the bottom, so I thought I’d post it here:

Road Updates
Traffic is bad due to the closed roads throughout the County. Please know that the Douglas County Department of Transportation is working 24/7 to re-open as many roads as possible as soon as possible. At the height of the disaster, about 170 roads were closed. That list is now down to 60.

Stewarts Mill Road at Reynolds Road reopened with restricted speeds.

Here is an abbreviated list, status and schedule of some of the more traveled roadways that are closed at the present time, plus the ones that we know at this time will be closed for an extended period of time (noted as prolonged closures which means more than 2 months). These are estimated repair times, and we hope that repairs can be accomplished earlier. The Douglas County DOT staff is working on roadways and construction contractors are being brought in to work on roads, bridges and culverts. Your patience is greatly appreciated.
