The Brantley school system has suspended classes for Tuesday and will determine whether to reopen classes for the remainder of the week on a day-to-day basis, interim superintendent Read Carter told the Enterprise Monday.
Carter said school had been cancelled because many county roads have been made impassable by rains that have fallen steadily since late last week that also are expected to push the Satilla River at Atkinson to flood stage by Wednesday.
While the river level has little impact of roads county wide, the amount of ran necessary to bring it to flood stage also causes many county roads to become impassable.
Brantley County issued a list of 11 roads that already had been fully or partially closed as of Monday at 3:30 p.m.
Those on the list include one end of Warner Landing Road, Wainright Loop, Bachlott Brake, Mineral Springs Road near Murphy Road, Hope Road between entrances to Oleander Circle, Deerwood Road, Chicago Avenue, Evergreen Road, Harrrington Road, Little Buffalo Creek Road between Buffalo Creek Drive and Baker Creek Road, and Baker Creek Road from U.S. Highway 82 to Airport Road.
