Buckhead road reopens hours after water main break caused ‘street to buckle’

A busy Buckhead road that had been blocked since Tuesday afternoon reopened early Wednesday morning.

East Paces Ferry Road was closed for nearly 11 hours between North Fulton Drive and Grandview Avenue after a water main break “caused the street to buckle,” Atlanta police said in a tweet. 


Service at three condo buildings, one office building and two hydrants was interrupted until crews repaired the water main just after 1:20 a.m., the Atlanta Department of Watershed Management said.


There are no more detours in place.
