County Road crews move concrete barriers into place Monday on Cove Road where a rockslide stopped traffic April 16.
Commissioner Rob Jones said the barriers should increase safety along the S-curves section of road. No other work is planned at this point, but the commissioner noted the steep rocky roadbed is not unique for North Georgia or the southern Appalachians.
“It was designed and installed by the state DOT in 1964. It’s as safe as it ever was,” he said. “It is what it is.”
