Notice of Temporary Street Closure Krog Street Between Edgewood Avenue And Dekalb Avenue JUNE 17 – AUGUST 3, 2013

From the City of Atlanta Department of Public Works:

Please be advised that Krog Street between Edgewood Avenue and Dekalb Avenue will be closed temporarily to allow for AT&T utility work to occur adjacent to the Edgewood Avenue Bridge Construction Zone.  The closure is planned for June 17, 2013 through August 3, 2013, weather permitting.

In an effort to minimize disruption to the community, this work has been scheduled to occur simultaneously with the current construction activity for the Edgewood Avenue Bridge.  Our goal is to maintain the existing detour route as much as possible in order to have this work completed before the Atlanta Public Schools reopen in August.  Once AT&T has completed their work the original detour route will resume.

Access to local businesses will be maintained during the period of the detour route and associated construction activity.  Additional detour signs will be installed to direct access to local businesses. The following detour route will be posted to re-direct vehicular traffic around the affected area as follows:
