Portion of Krog Street to close for nearly two months (Update)

Inman Park roadway shut down for utility work from June 17 to August 3

Traffic will get a little bit worse starting next week for motorists traveling through Inman Park and Old Fourth Ward.

Krog Street between Edgewood and DeKalb Avenues will be closed from June 17 to August 3 as AT&T conducts some much-needed utility work. City officials planned for this round of repairs to coincide with the rebuilding of the Edgewood Avenue bridge, which was demolished back in April.

“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,” Valerie Bell-Smith, a Department of Public Works spokeswoman, said in a statement. “Once AT&T has completed their work the original detour route will resume.”

Smith says that local business will keep their doors open and that additional detail signs will be placed to promote more foot traffic.

So expect delays throughout the area. We’ve included several different detours after the jump:
