Construction to rehabilitate aging sewer pipe
DECATUR– Beginning Dec. 14, portions of the northbound and southbound lanes along South Candler Street, between Midway Road and Buchanan Terrace, will be closed nightly from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m., while crews work to rehabilitate 299 linear feet of ductile-iron sewer pipe. This section of South Candler Street will reopen on Saturday, Dec. 19.
The DeKalb County Department of Watershed Management has initiated this construction project to address the repair needs of approximately 100,000 linear feet of sewer pipe as a part of ongoing maintenance to improve sewer service county-wide.
Motorists and MARTA passengers should expect delays stemming from the lane closures. Lane closure signs and traffic flaggers will assist motorists in moving safely around the lane closures. Our construction crews will work diligently to minimize the length of impact to motorists and MARTA passengers.
