Tree Down Across Ponce Near Clifton Road

From the AJC

A major route between Decatur and Atlanta was shut down by a fallen tree early Thursday.

The huge tree came crashing down onto Ponce de Leon Avenue near Clifton Road before 5 a.m.

All lanes of Ponce de Leon in both directions remained blocked at 7:30 a.m., and the state Department of Transportation was predicting it would be 10 a.m. before the road reopens.

  1. wow! I was wondering why there was no traffic on Ponce/ Scott Blvd this am. So strange- I don’t think there was much wind this morning. Kinda scary.

  2. Traffic awful around Clairemont/Scott/N. Decatur at 9:30-9:45 this morning. I’m imagining that it was east-west traffic that rerouted itself from Ponce to N. Decatur.

  3. Patch says Ponce totally reopened at 9:30 AM. Figures I’d get stuck in the last of the traffic mess.
