Crews to replace 160 linear feet of aging water pipe


DECATUR, GA– On Nov. 3, a portion of the northbound lane along Briarcliff Road, crossing North Druid Hills Road between QuikTrip and Chick-fil-A, will be closed Monday-Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Crews will work to replace 160 linear feet of ductile-iron water pipe. Eastbound traffic on North Druid Hills Road will also be impacted by this closure on Briarcliff Road. This section of Briarcliff Road will reopen on Saturday, Nov. 13.

The DeKalb County Department of Watershed Management has initiated this construction project to address the repair needs of approximately 100,000 linear feet of water pipe as a part of ongoing maintenance to improve water service countywide.


Motorists should expect delays stemming from the lane closure. Message boards will be in place to alert traffic.  Lane closure signs and traffic flaggers will assist motorists in moving safely around the lane closure. Construction crews will work diligently to minimize the length of impact to motorists.
