Horseleg to be closed this morning for tree removal: On Tuesday, June 26, a Georgia Power contractor will have Horseleg Creek Rd closed to through traffic to remove a dead tree. Because of the size of the tree, a crane is needed and will require the entire road to be closed. The road will be closed from 9 a.m. until noon. Sign boards were placed on Horseleg Creek Road Friday informing residents of the closure. The work will be taking place near 1711 Horseleg Creek Road and Huntington Road. Residents who live beyond the point of closure will still be able to access Horseleg Creek Road from the West Rome Bypass.
