A vehicle that went into the Augusta Canal Sunday morning has been removed.
At 11:55 a.m. Sunday, the Georgia Department of Transportation East Traffic Division reported on Twitter that a vehicle had gone off eastbound Interstate 20 and into the canal.
The condition of the driver was unknown. Traffic was not impacted.
The office later reported on Twitter that the car was removed around 1:45 p.m. and barrels placed along the site where the car left the road. Crews with Superior Construction will return to repair the site when the “weather is suitable for repair,” the tweet said.
This is the second time in less than a month that a vehicle has left I-20 eastbound and dove into the canal.
On Dec. 27, 2021, an 18-wheeler drove through an I-20 guardrail around 5:30 p.m., stopping or slowing traffic for several hours.
The vehicle was removed Dec. 28, 2021.
