UPDATE: Clairemont Avenue Closed Due to Tree Down Across Road This Morning

UPDATE DPD sent out this update at lunchtime today…

Removing the fallen tree from the roadway on Clairemont Avenue was only part of the task. A tree crew will now be working to take down the rest of the tree. The work is estimated to be complete by approximately 2pm but could take longer and the roadway will remain closed until the work is complete. Plan accordingly for after school pick-up. Please be patient and slow down while detouring through surrounding neighborhoods.


Notice all the sirens, helicopters overhead and diverted traffic on the northside of Decatur this morning?  Here’s what’s up.

Decatur Police sent out the following message this morning…

We have a tree down across Clairemont Avenue at Wilton Drive blocking all lanes and resting on a power line. No traffic can pass in the area. Take an alternate route.

And the city followed up with this…

Due to downed trees and powerlines, Clairemont Avenue is closed between Ponce De Leon Place and Lamont Drive. Please avoid this area until further notice.

We’ll keep you posted!
