Please avoid the area, if possible, by using Covington Highway,” the alert from the county says. “DeKalb County will provide updates about the progress of the repairs. For more information, contact the DeKalb County Watershed Department at 770-270-6243.”

According to ANF, county officials say the areas affected include:
– 4530 GLENWOOD ROAD
– AUSTIN DR, W AUSTIN RD, DANRICH DR, MOSERI RD.
The break forced several nearby businesses to close their doors early.
