GAINESVILLE - Georgia DOT says Hope Drive in Cleveland will be closed for about 15 days beginning Monday as the grade of the road is raised by 12 feet. The contractor is required to complete the work and reopen the road by August 11.<br />
"With such a significant grade change, traffic cannot continue to use the roadway as the work occurs. The detour route to access Hope Drive directs traffic further south on SR 11/US 129 to Warehouse Drive then to the back side of Hope Drive allowing access to the businesses and residences on Hope," explained Harold Mull, Georgia DOT District Construction Engineer.
White County officials report a happy ending to an incident involving a third grade student at White County Intermediate School. The student was placed on the wrong bus and got off at the wrong location late Tuesday and was the object of a small search.
