North Ola road will be closed due to pipe replacements on Monday starting at 9 am. Currently, there is no known date of completion for this project.

A large sign has been placed near 580 North Ola Road which is approximately where construction will begin. Though the sign was placed there awhile ago, middle school teachers received an email with more information concerning the closure on Friday.

A detour has been put in place for residents and buses that will have to drive through the area. They will be directed to take Turner Church Road to McGarity Road to Upchurch Road to Wilson Drive.

“We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience and cooperation,” said the Henry County Department of Transportation in an email to schools. They encourage anyone seeking additional information to call the county office at 770-288-7650.
