DOOLY COUNTY, Ga. — Cars are rolling through now, but come Monday, a part of Highway 90 will be blocked off. 

Community members can expect to see the same detour that was put in place when a CSX train derailed off a bridge in November.

Captain David Jones from the Dooly County Sheriff's Office says it's a much different scene now than it was last fall.

"Considering what happened, it's been a very quick process. As you can see, there's still some stuff here, but compared to what it was when they started, they cleaned up a lot of it and the weather has a lot to do with the impairment of them being able to clean it up faster," Jones said.

Since the derailment, Georgia's Department of Transportation says the roadway is fixed, but in order to do repairs on the bridge, they have to close off a section of Highway 90 again.

"Anything coming from the west will be detoured down Main Street to the connector back to 90. Anything coming from the Vinyl way will be turned down 230 connector, to Main Street, back to 90," Jones said.


The entrance to the Housing Authority off Highway 90 will close. People living there will have to take an alternate route through the back. 

Jones urges people to be extra careful when driving through the detour

"During this time we caution motorists to please use caution coming through this area and please slow their speed down, because it's a different route of traffic than they're used to," Jones said.

Georgia's Department of Transportation says the detour begins Monday at 7 a.m. and lasts through Sunday.
