Construction to repair 557 linear feet of aging sewer pipe

On Oct. 25, a portion of the Northbound lane along South Columbia Drive, between Missionary Drive and Derrydown Way, will be closed from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., while crews work to rehabilitate 386 linear feet of ductile-iron sewer pipe. This section of South Columbia Drive will reopen on Saturday, Nov. 6.

The DeKalb County Department of Watershed Management has initiated this construction project to address the repair needs of approximately 100,000 linear feet of sewer pipe as a part of ongoing maintenance to improve sewer service countywide.

Motorists should expect delays stemming from the lane closure. Lane closure signs and traffic flaggers will assist motorists in moving safely around the lane closure. Our construction crews will work diligently to minimize the length of impact to motorists.
