State Highway 23 in Franklin County

Detours have been established to route traffic around a hill slide on State Highway 23 north of Cass. Approximately 700 linear feet of roadway is at risk of sliding. Large cracks have formed in the northbound and southbound travel lanes, rendering both impassable. This closure includes 3.2 miles of State Highway 23 between the Mulberry Mountain Lodge (south end) and Fly Gap Road (north end). The impacted section of highway will remain closed until repairs can be made. Delivery time for a solution has yet to be established.
