Ridgecrest Road Water Line Replacement Project Begins June 13
Construction to install new water line system

DECATUR, Ga. – Efforts to improve water service capacity throughout DeKalb County continues on Monday, June 13, with the launch of the Ridgecrest Road Water Line Replacement Project. Crews will replace 1,250 linear feet of crumbling water lines with new 8-inch ductile-iron water lines along Ridgecrest Road. This line repair project is expected to last approximately 2 months (June to August 2022), barring any weather delays.

Ridgecrest Road, between Ponce De Leon Avenue NE and East Lake Road NE, will be closed to through-traffic weekdays for the duration of the project.

Normal construction hours will be from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding major holidays. An increase in construction-related noise and traffic during work hours should be expected.

Information can be obtained by calling the DWM Project Information Line at 1-800-986-1108 or emailing projectinfo@dekalbcountyga.gov with questions.
