A portion of Buford Highway that was closed Wednesday due to a water main break is open again, according to DeKalb County officials.
The part south of Beverly Hills Drive in Chamblee was blocked so crews could repair damage from the 8-inch break, which occurred Monday, officials said in a statement.
Lanes were open again about 3:30 p.m. Wednesday.
“Repairs to the water main are complete,” the county said. “And no customers are without water service.”
Crews worked Tuesday night into Wednesday to fill a gaping hole in the highway dug as part of repair efforts.
Work along the highway earlier hurt local businesses.
Workers at a nearby Domino’s Pizza told Channel 2 Action News that few customers could get to the restaurant and their delivery drivers struggled to find routes.
