MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Ala. (WSFA) - The emergency management agencies in both Montgomery and Elmore counties announced the reopening Tuesday of Dozier Road and the Emerald Mountain Expressway Toll Bridge. They reopened at noon.
The road and toll bridge had been closed due to flooding from the Tallapoosa River over the last week.
While waters had receded over the weekend, the Montgomery County EMA found that large chunks of asphalt had been damaged, as had the shoulder of the road in some places.
County maintenance crews got to work Monday to fix the issues before it could be reopened.
