Deputies to assist traffic flow on Warren Road

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) - December usually brings heavier than usual traffic to Warren Road because of a house decorated with around 200,000 Christmas lights.

Richmond County Sheriff's Sgt. Shane McDaniel confirms a patrol car is assigned to that beat, and the surrounding area.

McDaniel said if the deputy witnesses traffic backing up, the road deputy will stop and assist motorists with the flow of traffic.

There is also a road deputy assigned to monitor the subdivision, McDaniel said, which is a special assignment that has existed for several years.
