Crews were out Friday trying to repair the damage caused to the Department of Driver Services by a roof leak at an adjacent unit. 


The Newnan location of the Department of Driver's Services is closed indefinitely due to flooding. The roof leaked during this morning's heavy rains, according to Coweta Communications Manager Tom Corker.

Coweta County provides the space for the office under an agreement with the state. Corker said it was his understanding that some roof work was being done at the time. 

It's not known right now how long it will be before the office is able to reopen.

Other DDS locations nearby are: Carrollton, at 512 Old Newnan Road, Fayetteville at 278 McElroy Road, and LaGrange at 900 Dallis Street.

All DDS offices will be closed next Saturday, Nov. 9, and Monday, Nov. 11, for Veteran's Day.
