Part of Scott Boulevard, Lawrenceville Highway to close next week for water main replacement
This story has been updated.
For the next week, part of Scott Boulevard and Lawrenceville Highway will be closed daily as the county continues its water main replacement project.
From Sunday, Oct. 20, to Thursday, Oct. 31, the right eastbound traffic lane along Scott Boulevard and Lawrenceville Highway, between DeKalb Industrial Way and Jordan Lane, will be closed daily between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m., the county said in a press release.
The project, which includes the upsizing of nearly 2,400 feet of water pipe in the DeKalb Industrial Boulevard area, has kept Jordan Lane closed to through-traffic to accommodate construction. Access to residences, the DeKalb County Utility Customer Operations Center, WorkSource DeKalb and other businesses on Jordan Lane is available from North Decatur Road.
According to the county, pedestrians and MARTA users have normal access from North Decatur Road. A walkway, fence, and signage are in place to direct pedestrians and MARTA users from Scott Boulevard and Lawrenceville Highway.
Additionally, a message board and detour and roadway safety signs will be posted advising motorists about construction work and local traffic restrictions.
Motorists who use Jordan Lane to access Scott Boulevard or Lawrenceville Highway are urged to plan for extra commuting time. Jordan Lane closures and detours will be in effect until the work in the area is completed in November, the county said.
