The roads county officials know will be closed are:
• Walsh Johnson Road – dead end with no other access. The railroad has contacted homes affected and the Coweta Fire Department is planning to place a reserve truck across the railroad tracks.

• Vine Street.
• Rugby Lane
• Herring Road – A detour will be in place from U.S. Hwy. 29 to Green Top Road.
There are other streets/ roads affected but they are either private roads or in a municipality, Palmer said. An exact starting location for the work was not given, and county officials said they will share that information as soon as it is passed along from CSX.
