JESUP, Ga. (WSAV) – US 341 between Jesup and Brunswick has reopened after an emergency closure Wednesday evening.
The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) said the highway was closed due to a fire in the area. Because smoke was causing limited visibility, the Georgia State Patrol requested the shutdown.
For roughly an hour and a half, traffic was detoured at the intersection of US 301 in Jesup to SR 32 in Hortense, then continuing on SR 32 to US 341 at Sterling in Glynn County.
US 341 reopened around 7:30 p.m.
GDOT said drivers are still urged to use caution if experiencing poor visibility in the area.
