Although work has started on Lowes Gap Road in northern Bledsoe County, Road Supervisor Robby Roberson is advising residents the road is still unsafe to travel and closed until further notice.
Roberson said there is still much work to be done including reinstalling pipe, stabilizing ditches, and essentially rebuilding the road bed where February flooding washed much of it away.
People attempting to travel down the road are also in danger of hindering the progress of the road work. Large highway department equipment leaves no room for traffic to go around, which will force people to back out of the road, he added.
The project is expected to take at least four to six more weeks, Roberson said, and he urges the residents in the area to be patient as the crews work to reopen the road.
