Towns Road was the last anticipated full Troup County road closure related to the December 2015 flood. All County roads are now open. There are still 22 locations with unfinished flood damage repair work remaining to be completed, but we expect all of that work can be accomplished without another full road closure (only brief temporary one-lane closures with flaggers).
The Troup County Board of Commissioners is considering nominations for the following boards and committees:
Family & Children Services Board of Directors

This 1.42 mile project located in the city of LaGrange, Troup County consists of widening a two-lane roadway to four lanes with a 20-foot raised median and urban shoulders. It begins at the intersection of SR 1/US 27/Hamilton Road and Auburn Street (MP 14.80), and extends northerly to the intersection of SR 1/US 27/Hamilton Road and US 219/Whitesville Street/Morgan Street (MP 16.22). Extending from Auburn Street to SR 219, the project would complete the last link in the multilaning of the heavily traveled SR 1/US 27 corridor from I-85 south of LaGrange to near Waugh Road north of LaGrange. The corridor provides a much needed north-south multilane facility through a growing urban area.
