All lanes of Buford Highway just south of Chamblee Tucker Road are open again after emergency road repairs.
  • Story Highlights
  • Both directions were blocked since Tuesday night.
  • Lanes opened about 3:30 p.m.
  • The road was damaged due to an 8-inch water main break.

A portion of Buford Highway that was closed Wednesday due to a water main break is open again, according to DeKalb County officials.

The part south of Beverly Hills Drive in Chamblee was blocked so crews could repair damage from the 8-inch break, which occurred Monday, officials said in a statement.

Lanes were open again about 3:30 p.m. Wednesday.

“Repairs to the water main are complete,” the county said. “And no customers are without water service.” 

Crews worked Tuesday night into Wednesday to fill a gaping hole in the highway dug as part of repair efforts.

Work along the highway earlier hurt local businesses.

Workers at a nearby Domino’s Pizza told Channel 2 Action News that few customers could get to the restaurant and their delivery drivers struggled to find routes.
