Road Closed Ahead Graphic

Multi-Day Road Closure Of Union Hill Road

Released October 15, 2019 02:47 PM
A portion of Union Hill Road near the Alpharetta - Forsyth County line is expected to be closed for multiple days as crews complete repairs resulting from a water main break.  The affected section is located between McGinnis Ferry Road and the entrance to Alpharetta's Union Hill Park.

On Tuesday morning an automobile struck a fire hydrant, resulting in major damage to the connected water main.  That damage eroded the ground and support under the road.  While crews were still assessing the situation at the time this report was being written, engineers at the site were confident that it would take more than a single day to complete the repairs necessary to make the road safe for public use.

Motorists are advised to use McGinnis Ferry Road, Windward Concourse, and Windward Parkway to detour around the closure and to anticipate traffic delays in the area as a result of the shift in traffic patterns.
