Section of Gainous Road to be closed Monday
A section of Gainous Road will be closed for up to two months beginning Monday as roadwork on Gainous and Cedar Springs Roads and the new Gainous Road bridge ramps up.
Grady County administrator Carlos Tobar made the announcement Tuesday night. County crews will begin Monday, depending on the weather, to build the newly aligned road.
Tobar said the county would call all residents of the area to notify them of the road closure.
“We are at the point we need to tear up Gainous Road from 656 Gainous Rd. to Cedar Springs Road,” Tobar said.
Work could be completed in one month, but at the worst it could take two months, according to the county administrator.
Once that section is complete, the county will close Gainous Road east of the new bridge so the approach to the bridge can be built up.
Tobar also reported the pilings for the Gainous Road bridge are being driven and the deck would be ready soon.
Grady County Commission Vice Chairman Elwyn Childs asked for an update on the state’s Hwy. 112 bridge replacement project. Commissioner Prince responded that the project was ahead of schedule.
Tobar agreed, but would not comment on when the new bridge may be opened to traffic.
Grady County Commission Chairman Charles Norton said he had been told there may be issues with the new bridge, but could not speak with authority.
