Part of Crenshaw County road caves in

CRENSHAW COUNTY, Ala. (WSFA) - The area around part of County Road 77 (Ivy Creek Road) in Crenshaw County has begun to cave in, affecting traffic in the area.

According to the county EMA director Elliott Jones, the Crenshaw County Highway Department advised him of the situation Wednesday morning. The section of the roadway is located approximately 5 and a half miles south of Highway 10 and 4 and a half miles north of Highway 106.

Jones said the section of the roadway will be open to local traffic only. Temporary repairs have been made so that local traffic can travel through the area, but the section will remain closed to all thru and commercial traffic until permanent repairs can be performed.

Jones said the repair project could take up to three or four weeks to complete.
