    Midday Tuesday, June 17, Georgia DOT engineer Sam Wheeler said crews were removing barricades at the Jones Mountain bridge on Highway 136 that has been closed since April. 

     "They will wait for a week or two and then go in and do a repair to the asphalt, but we are waiting to see if there is anymore settlement behind the bridge first," Wheeler said.

   The repairs are considered temporary. One person on the job said it is a band-aid, but one that will allow the important connector between Pickens and Gilmer counties to be used until a permanent fix is completed.
