Sheep Farm Road officially opens
Rarely can you say that a new, major highway has opened in Oconee County. But you can today. The five-lane Sheep Farm Road, from 123 at Wells Highway, crossing the Bountyland Road, and proceeding north to 28 at Tanglewood has officially opened. Ryan Miller, resident construction engineer for the DOT, describes his office and the US Group, very happy, though, at times, motorists should expect temporary lane closures as the state and the contractor resolve punch-list items and clean up work.
