Yet another Upson County road has closed, but according to the county's Emergency Management Agency, "this one will affect a ton of folks."

A picture of Jeff Davis Road in Thomaston appears to show a completely caved in portion of the street.

Authorities said this safety hazard is located near the back entrance to the Department of Transportation. Motorists are advised to find an alternative route for any necessary travel until the road can be fixed.
