t PAGE 6-A II HOGANSVILLE HERALD - THURSDAY, MARCH 13, 2014 Closed Road Causes Traffic Problems Continued From Page 1A or could turn onto College Street and cross the railroad tracks at the Village. Though construction has not been finished on Oak Street, that street was opened to serve as a detour. While both Oak Street and College Street could serve as detour routes for small vehi- cles, neither could accommo- date tractor-trailers. For tractor-trailers, the detour route was East Boyd from Hwy. 29 to Ga. Hwy. 354 at Myrtle HiU Cemetery. Main Street was Closed on Tuesday, Mar. 4, for repairs to be made to the railroad. Road closed signs were placed between 1-85 and the downtown area, along with a specific sign located east of Myrtle Hill Cemetery advis- ing truck drivers about the detour route. Some did not heed the signs. According to City Manager James Woods, truck drivers missLg the detour sign had not been much of an issue earlier in the week, but it became one Friday morn- ing when the street was still closed. In the space of about 15 minutes, three tractor-trail- ers missed the detour sign causing a traffic problem on East Main Street. The Hogansville Police Department responded to the scene and helped get the traf- fic situation unsnarled, which required sending two of the tractor-trailers through the parking lot at Calvin Hipp Veterans Memorial Park, on to High Street, and back to East Main Street. The closed road contin- ued to cause periodic issues until repairs were complet- ed and the road reopened.  mIW Koi MISSED THE SIGN? - The driver of this tractor-trailer apparently missed seeing each of the signs indicating the Ga. Hwy. 54 was closed. He also apparently missed the detour sign indicating that trucks should travel along East Boyd Road. That result- ed in him attempting the turn the trac- tor-trailer around on Main Street, and that effort was not going very well, either. Even as this was taking place, two other truck drivers missed the same signs but were ultimately able to turn around using the parking lot at Calvin Hipp Veterans Memorial Park and High Street. roh I= Your LUCKY Month at I Southern Crescent Menu MONDAY Salisbury steak with gravy, herb masted red potatoes, tossed salad, whole wheat roll, Iowfat salad dressing, banana pudding (w/bananas), milk, coffee and tea TUESDAY Oven crispy chicken, green lima beans, squash-rise casserole, combread, mar- garine, applesauce with sliced strawberries, milk, coffee and tea.
