Meadows Rd at Lewis Rd CC

Not sure why this is closed. The sign is up but the road is quite passable. We were through just about a half hour ago.

Highway 278 is closed between Westside and Oglesby. And apparently between Westside and Humphries Hill.

It was a mess out there.

On Hiram Lithia Springs Road, the brand new bridge that opened about six weeks ago is underwater!

Cobb dismissed middle schools at 1:15. Elementary & high school at normal times....and the police in Austell have informed the campus police that if they can't get the students dispersed by 4:00, they aren't going anywhere...

Why didn't they close the schools?? How are those bus drivers going to get those kids home??
In history there are people who have had their clothes, food, housing and jobs provided to them.

Those people were called "slaves".

We couldn't figure that out either. The sign was up when we left this morning but it was across the road when we came back home about 3 hours later. Road was fine both times. Maybe they closed it to keep people from going that way off Oglesby since Hiram Lithia was closed and not a way around the closed area of 278.

Prayers for all involved. We saw a LOT of damage while we were out. Cars in the flood waters, houses and churches flooded. So sad to see.

It was when I came through around...4:30ish. I spent a good 2 hours trying to get back out of Austell.

Macland was open from E/W to Hopkins around 8:00.

Bankhead on either side of downtown Austell explains the long line of traffic along Humphries Hill in downtown Austell. My daughter lives there and said it has been a constant line of traffic all day long. She knew that now they were turning people back toward 278/Thornton Road. Like they can go somewhere.

Macland Road at Powder Creek at the Cobb / Paulding line is closed indefinitely, per a friend who lives there. Seems to be some fear of the road collapsing, so they have to build a levy...no idea how long that is supposed to take.

Powder Springs Rd at Hopkins is closed as well.

All SB Lanes Of I-285 Closed In Cobb County, Posted 2PM @ 11alive

http://www.11alive.c...ailAttribute1%%

Officials have closed all southbound lanes of I-285 in Cobb County until further notice, due to flooding. All southbound entrance ramps to 285 are closed in the county.

285 had been previously closed between South Cobb Drive and Hollowell Parkway. This expands that closure.

That is the last exit that you can get off on is the 75 North and Southbound exit........and the one for Hwy 41.

This has been going on all day.

THANKS!!! DH works in Buckhead and gets on I-285 at the Roswell Road/Sandy Springs exit and gets on I-75N. Just wanted to make sure he didn't need to find an alternate route.

Maybe he should just come straight down West Paces Ferry to 75N. I know the traffic this way is terrible anyways but atleast he would avoid 285 all together. Good luck!

Remember that there are TWO I-285/I-75 interchanges; one on the nortside and the other on the southside.
