Some Vidalia streets closed to traffic

VIDALIA — Vidalia Police and street department employees are closing several streets to passing traffic due to flooding.

And Street Director Lee Staggs urged residents to stay off the neighborhood roadways that are open. Staggs said joyriders creating splashes on the roadway are endangering property and houses.

“The water is getting pretty close to the houses,” Staggs said of Apple Street, which is closed to through traffic.

Rainwater in Vidalia drains to the Vidalia Canal, which is currently blocked on one end. Street drains are clear, but with the steady rainfall and full canal, there is nowhere else for the water to go, Staggs said.

Other streets experiencing significant flooding include Lee Avenue, Bill Johnson Drive and Lillian Road.
