ANSON COUNTY, NC (FOX 46 WJZY) - Mayesville Rd. is one of 44 roads still closed in Anson County after Florence left them washed out and damaged.
North Carolina Department of Transportation spokesperson Timothy Anderson says they’re doubling up their efforts to assess and repair the damage.
"We started out with two teams per county. Now we have 17 assessment teams. 12 of those are assessing Union and Anson Counties," said Anderson.
Anson and Union Counties are the hardest hit in our area. Anderson says it would take two to three days to just fix Mayesville Rd., but with more than a hundred roads impacted in our area, he says it will take a lot longer.
"Several of our counties will have the repairs done quickly, but Anson and Union Counties will take substantially more time. Anson and Union will likely take several months to complete all the work."
