UPDATE: Scott Blvd. open again after being closed between Clairemont and Coventry
This story has been updated.
UPDATE: The city just tweeted that Scott Boulevard is open again and power in the area has been restored.
The city of Decatur previously said Scott Boulevard was closed in both directions between Clairemont Avenue and Coventry Road because of a tree down on live power lines.
The city said in a blog post, that stretch of Scott would remain closed until Georgia Power crews arrive and made the scene safe.
It warned people to find alternate routes and avoid the area until further notice.
We’ll update this story as more information becomes available.
Here’s the full post from the city:
