Candler Road closed through Wednesday

A single-lane closure began Monday along Candler Road, between Valley Ridge Drive and Toney Drive, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. while crews work to rehabilitate approximately 350 linear feet of aging, ductile-iron sewer pipe, according to a press release.

This section of Candler Road will reopen on Wednesday, June 3.

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

Motorists and MARTA passengers should expect traffic delays stemming from the 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 and MARTA passengers.
