County asks for DOT aid |

Early estimates are showing Dawson County suffered nearly $600,000 in storm damage from heavy rainfall last month that flooded areas along the Etowah River and washed out several roads.

Dawson County Manager Cindy Campbell said the county has requested $585,000 in assistance from the Georgia Department of Transportation for repairs.

“We estimate the total damages to be about $585,000. It could still be more damage that we just haven’t identified yet, but that’s where we stand at this point,” she said.

The storm dumped more than 6 inches of rain in less than seven hours May 19 forced several roads, including a gravel section of Etowah River Road that washed away in the storm, to close.
