Latest estimate from crews on scene are the S turn section of Cove Road could open this evening by around 6 p.m. but that was a "shooting for" time, subject to change.
Cove Road, a major thoroughfare for east/west commutes in Pickens County, may remain closed all day with a load of lumber and overturned tractor-trailer in the steep S curves section not far from Jasper.
No injuries were reported when the truck carrying the lumber overturned this morning.
Pickens Commission Chair Rob Jones said that crews from out of the county are coming to assist in the cleanup, but the road could be closed until midnight Monday.
