Toccoa, Ga. – Georgia DOT announces Davis Road will be closed at its intersection with State Route 17 beginning, Monday January 26 for about 60 days, if weather permits. The grade of Davis Road must be raised by eight feet to match the grade of the new SR 17.

Approximately 500 feet of Davis Road closest to the intersection with SR 17 will be closed.  The detour route will direct traffic from State Route 17 to Hickory Log Circle and to Davis Road.
