CONYERS, Ga. — A big sinkhole has forced a road to shut down that connects two schools in Rockdale County.
The sinkhole is on Rowland Road in Conyers.
As of Monday morning, Conyers Police said Rowland Road between Rockdale County High School and C.J. Hicks Elementary & Magnet School will remain closed until further notice. School traffic must enter from Pine Log Road, police said and other drivers are asked to take alternate routes.
Police said that since they posted video and photos of the sinkhole, it has grown so much that it swallowed up police barricades.
Conyers was heavy-hit by rains and flash flooding after Thursday’s overnight storms.
A bridge at Eastview Road and Norton Road is shut down after water from Boar Tusk Branch Creek completely flooded the roadway.
At a home on Johnson Road, a driveway was completely washed out. The home is close to Almand Creek, which experienced a rush of water during the storm.
