SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Chatham County Police have reopened all of Highway 80 after flooding forced the road to be shut down briefly Wednesday morning.
High tide was expected to top 10′ on Wednesday, with a peak some time between 9 and 10 a.m.
Chatham County Police closed Highway 80 at the Bull River Bridge around 9 a.m. as the road became impassable due to water on the roadway.
High tide also brought water onto portions of Highway 80 near Fort Pulaski Tuesday morning. Water did creep into the eastbound lane but not enough to close the road. It did, however, force drivers to decrease speed and use the other lane to avoid the water.
Highway 80 was reopened to traffic around 10 a.m.
