Traffic alerts: N Decatur Rd, Lullwater Rd

From Emory's Communications office: To the Emory Community:  The following two non-Emory projects have implications for those driving to and from campus. Please plan your travel accordingly.

1.       DeKalb County continues repairing and repaving North Decatur Road between Clifton Road and Emory Village.  Lanes will remain open but delays are likely.  This project includes milling off the top surface of the road, patching the existing roadway, and repaving this section of North Decatur Road, including the roundabout in Emory Village. It is expected to be complete in approximately two weeks.

2.       Next Wednesday through Friday, June 8-10, Lullwater Road will be closed in the evening (6:00 p.m. until approximately 8:00 a.m.) between Ponce de Leon Avenue and North Decatur Road for a movie shoot.   DeKalb County will have officers and signage on site during the closure.

Storm aftermath

Update: power was restored in Clairmont Heights area around 10:30 p.m. the same day (Tuesday).  Thanks to the utility crews!

Local observations and reports ...

  • 8:30 a.m. Power out on N Superior to Heritage Hills. 
  • 8:30 a.m. Fallen tree debris on N Superior between Desmond and Heritage Hills.
  • 8:30 a.m. Desmond Drive blocked between Reckle and Park.  Power lines on street.
  • 8:30 a.m. Tree down and blocking Blackmon Drive

WSB has a comprehensive list of road problems here:

Georgia Power says to wait 24 hours before reporting outages: "Following a severe storm with widespread power interruptions, customers should wait a reasonable amount of time before calling to report an outage. There's no need to call within the first 24 to 48 hours. The company knows where the power is out because its automated system alerts a technician when a line goes off. As the restoration progresses, Georgia Power will announce through the media if residents in specific areas should call in if they're still without power."

To check power outage status online:

As of 9:30 a.m. the site indicates that the outage on N Superior was known, a crew dispatched, but no estimated time to restoration of power.

Emory Village roadwork update

From Alliance to Improve Emory Village: Emory Village Roadwork Proceeds to the Next Phase.  DeKalb County’s project to improve streetscapes and add a roundabout in Emory Village moves forward to the next phase on Thursday, March 17, and it will have critical traffic implications.

As that roadway opens, construction will shift to another section of the busy North Decatur Road- Oxford Road intersection. The South Oxford Road (near Everybody’s Pizza) will close for approximately 60 days as construction crews work on that section of the roundabout. The North Oxford Road near the Chevron station and Emory’s campus will remain open.
