City crews worked throughout the evening removing fallen trees and large branches from Alpharetta's roadways and resetting traffic signals impacted by scattered power outages, Gordon said . "Crews began treating roadways at 3:00 this morning, and at this time there are no road closures in Alpharetta," he added.
