Update – residents reporting that DeKalb Ave is still closed.
Lots of area residents got stuck trying to get to/from downtown Atlanta yesterday. This morning, the AJC has a pretty extensive report – and photos! – of the water main break that closed DeKalb Ave…
A major northeast Atlanta thoroughfare reopened Thursday night after a predawn water main break flooded the roadway.
The break, near the intersection of DeKalb Avenue and Elmira Place, was reported just before 6 a.m. Emergency repairs were completed around 8 p.m. and water service was restored.
But it’s not all over yet.
Crews will continue to repair the street Friday, resulting in single lane closures, authorities said.
