The closures will be from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.

The project is replacing nearly seven miles of water main pipes on Rockbridge Road between South Deshon Road and Memorial Drive.

“Motorists and MARTA passengers that use Rockbridge Road are urged to plan for extra commuting time,” the county has said.
