Decatur, GA — The Georgia Department of Transportation is in the process of resurfacing Clairemont Avenue. Contractors have started the preliminary work and will continue through late March.

GDOT is resurfacing the road from College Avenue to Buford Highway. This resurfacing project will produce a smoother ride for drivers while also improving the condition of the deteriorating roadway, according to a press release from GDOT.

This $4.8 million project is scheduled for completion in late summer 2022.

Paving within the city limits of Decatur is expected to start in April and is anticipated to be finished within 60 days, according to a Facebook post from the city.

“Please be advised that there will be nightly traffic interruptions from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. Sunday through Friday, weather permitting,” the Facebook post states. “As always, remember to reduce your speeds in the work zone, wear seatbelts and eliminate distractions behind the wheel. For questions or more information, please contact Borden Polk, Area Engineer, at [email protected].”

Motorists are advised to expect delays, exercise caution, and reduce their speed while traveling through the work zone during the project work hours. Before heading out, get real-time information on work status and traffic conditions. Call 511, visit 511ga.org, or download the Georgia 511 app.
