TRAFFIC ALERT: Clifton Road, March 3-6

Work continues on the Clifton Streetscape project. This weekend the intersection of Clifton Road and Lowergate Drive will be replaced resulting in traffic disruption on Clifton Road.

Starting the evening of Friday, March 3 after 8:00 p.m. and continuing over the weekend through Monday morning, March 6 at 5:00 a.m., Clifton Road will be closed between Gambrell Drive and Uppergate Drive.  In addition, Lowergate Drive will be closed during this timeframe.

  • Vehicles will be rerouted via detour signs to avoid the work zone, and personnel will be on site directing traffic.
  • The sidewalk on the west side of Clifton Road (the Emory University Hospital side) will remain open to pedestrians.   
  • Bus service will continue on Clifton Road, but will be diverted around the work zone; stop and route changes are at http://emory.transloc.com/.
  • Emergency access to the Emergency Departments (ED) of both Emory Healthcare and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta will remain open, but access to the Emory University Hospital ED will be provided from a special drop-off area by the ambulance ramp with staff transport into the ED.

Note that this work is weather dependent and subject to change; if there are changes, Emory will provide updates. Thank you for your patience as these improvements are made on Clifton Road, and visit this web site for updates.
