Geneva County officials say roads are in good condition despite recent severe weather


GENEVA COUNTY, Ala. (WDHN) — Despite quite a bit of rainfall over the weekend, Geneva County road crew personnel say there doesn’t appear to be too much damage.

With more than 600 miles of dirt roads, county engineer Justin Barfield told WDHN there were only a few instances where roads were washed out. In addition, the paved streets appear in good shape with only a few instances where the rain created pot holes.

In the past, Geneva County and its municipalities have been severely impacted by torrential rains.

“As of right now, we’re clearing the debris that we pushed out of the road Saturday and also checking on some drainage issues that were called in too because of the rain that clogged some of the cross drains, etc.,” Barfield said.

During Saturday’s severe weather, Geneva County E-911 personnel say their call volume more than doubled with all sorts of questions about watches and warnings.
