City of Helen 100 years

Last Friday, March 26, 2021, the City of Helen experienced torrential rain resulting in significant flooding. During this time, a portion of Ridge Road was heavily damaged. This portion of the road will be closed until the road can be repaired. At this time, there is no estimation as to how long this repair will take. The road will be closed at 114 Ridge Road. Anyone needing to access property between Escowee Road and 114 Ridge Road will have to do so from the City of Helen side. Anyone needing to access property between GA Alternate 75 and 114 Ridge Road will need to enter and exit from the GA Alternate 75 side. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, but safety is the utmost concern. If you have any questions, please call Helen City Hall at 706-878-2733.
