Briarcliff Road Lane Closure on Nov. 21
Crews to replace broken manhole cover

DECATUR, Ga. – On Nov. 21, a portion of the northbound lane along Briarcliff Road, near North Druid Hills Road, will be closed Monday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. while crews work to replace a broken manhole cover.

The construction work requires a lane closure at the intersection of Briarcliff Road Northeast and North Druid Hills Road.

Motorists should expect delays stemming from the lane closure. 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.

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.
