N. Ala. Roads Ravaged By Recent Freezes

Fort Payne, AL – Officials say snow and freezing weather a few weeks ago ravaged north Alabama County roads.

DeKalb County Road Department Supervisor Tom Broyles told the county commission Tuesday that more than 200 roads totaling about 150 miles suffered freeze damage.

DeKalb County Emergency Management Agency Director Mike Leath said survey work was done and about $7 million in projects was sent to FEMA.

Etowah County Engineer Tim Graves told the Etowah County Commission that an estimated $604,000 in damage had been caused to county roads.

Leath said the damage is widespread, and many counties in Alabama reported significant weather damage to roads.
