Fayette ‘works around clock’ on roads, helping stranded motorists


Fayette County offices closed while emergency crews help motorists and clear roads

Based upon existing road conditions, road closures, expected low temperatures, conditions of state highways and continued accident reports from E-911, all county non-essential offices are asked to stay at home Wednesday.
Fayette County Emergency Management staff will continue to monitor weather conditions and update the County weather number, 770-305-5444.

A significant number of vehicles have wrecked or become stranded on local roads. All citizens are asked not to drive unless absolutely necessary.

Fayette County Emergency Management, Fire Services, E-911 Services, Public Works, Water System, Roads Department and the Sheriff’s Office are working around the clock to keep the infrastructure in passable condition and assist stranded motorists.

“Staff from the county and all the municipalities are out in force tonight and will do everything possible to keep the main thoroughfares open on Wednesday,” said Fayette Chairman Steve Brown. “We are deeply appreciative of their efforts.”
