2 separate projects that require Atlanta roads to close have begun

Two separate projects that require the temporary closure of roads in northwest and northeast Atlanta began Monday.

In Vine City, construction is taking place in preparation for the Upper Proctor Creek Capacity Relief Project in Rodney Cook Sr. Park. The project, slated for completion in December 2018, is designed to help alleviate flooding and add greenspace.

Construction requires the following closures:

• Vine Street NW between Joseph E. Boone Blvd. NW and Thurmond Street NW

• Rock Street NW between Vine Street NW and Walnut Street NW

• Tyler Street NW between Vine Street NW and 593 Tyler St. NW

• Thurmond Street NW between Elm Street NW and Vine Street NW

In northeast Atlanta, Club Drive NE between Carter Drive NE and E. Brookhaven Drive NE will be closed through Nov. 22 while crews perform repair work from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.

In both cases, drivers are urged to avoid the area if possible. Traffic control measures will be in place to guide drivers around the work zones.
