A portion of a Cobb County road remains closed due to flooding after heavy rainfall moved through metro Atlanta Thursday.
Keheley Road at Eula Drive in Marietta is closed to motorists, said Cobb County spokesman Ross Cavitt. He said there could be damage to the roadway that requires repairs.
Thursday’s flooding forced the county to close Noonday, Tramore, Powder Springs and East Cobb parks. With the exception of Noonday Park, the county has reopened those facilities. However, residents should note that the fields at Fullers Park are also still closed due to flooding.
Crews spent Friday cleaning up storm damage and debris at East Cobb, Powder Springs and Sandy Plains parks.
“Some fields in other parks may be closed until damage is cleared and the water recedes, Cavitt said.
Cavitt said the “horrible weather” will force the county to keep the Silver Comet Trail over Noses Creek, located near the Carter Road trail head parking lot in Powder Springs, closed for longer than anticipated.
“Crews have not been able to keep to their timeline for repairing the bridge,” he said.
The closure date will extend from Feb. 20 to March 20 “to be on the safe side,” Cavitt said.
