A small landslide has closed Ellijay road for a day or two just past Rocky Branch Road in the 3200 block. The Supervisor at the scene expects the road to be closed most of the day and may not be re-opened until tomorrow. The overall cleanup at the slide location will take longer. You can check whether or not the road has been opened to traffic at the NCDOT TIMS website.
The NCDOT detour is as follows: Slide is 1 mile south of SR 1528 (Little Ellijay Rd).
Residents south of SR 1528 will travel south on SR 1001(Ellijay Rd) to US 28/64.
