DeKalb Begins New Phase of Water Main Replacement Project on Scott Boulevard

Dekalb County

DECATUR, Ga. – On Monday, July 27, lane closures are set to begin along Scott Boulevard, between Church Street and DeKalb Industrial Way, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. while crews work to install approximately 6,000 square feet of 12- and 24-inch water main. Lane closures will occur daily along this section of Scott Boulevard until Sept 30.

Work crews will dig an eight-foot trench to install the new water mains. This project will require two westbound traffic lanes on Scott Boulevard to be closed during construction as well as one northbound lane on Church Street and Scott Boulevard to be closed. Additionally, a connector street from Scott Boulevard will be closed during construction hours. (See map on page 2)

Motorists should expect traffic delays stemming from the construction. Detour signs and traffic flaggers will assist motorists in moving safely around the road closure. The construction contractor, Renee Group, Inc., will work diligently to minimize the length of impact to motorists and MARTA passengers.

The DeKalb County Department of Watershed Management has initiated this construction project to strengthen water and sewer infrastructure countywide.
