Detours and Traffic Shifts Planned for DeKalb Watershed Management Water Main Installation Project The DeKalb County Department of Watershed Management (DWM) urges motorists to use caution when driving on East Ponce de Leon Avenue between I-285 and Market Street as work begins on the final phase of the Clarkston Streetscape Water Main Relocation Project. Under construction since August 2017, the Clarkston Streetscape Water Main project is designed to improve water and fire service to the City of Clarkston by replacing nearly 8,000 linear feet of existing water mains that have reached or exceeded their average useful service lives. As part of the project, new ductile iron pipe, water meters, hydrants, backflow preventer devices and service lines to the new mains are being installed along portions of East Ponce de Leon Avenue, Market Street, Rowland Street and Norman Road. DWM reports that project contractor Layne Inliner, Inc., has installed more than 3,000 feet of water pipe and completed service tie-ins on Norman Road, Rowland Street and Market Street. Though delayed due to unforeseen permitting issues, the most impactful water main installation on East Ponce de Leon Avenue is now underway. Expect an increase in heavy equipment traffic on East Ponce de Leon Avenue between Interstate 285 and Market Street. In addition, there will be temporary one-lane closures along the project route, which may cause traffic delays. Traffic safety and control measures are in effect to assist drivers in moving safely and orderly through the construction zone. Detours and police direction also will be implemented in April and June when work reaches the Mell Avenue and North Indian Creek Drive intersections. Drivers are urged to observe lane restrictions and pay close attention to “caution” signs and traffic control personnel during construction hours. Clarkston residents directly impacted by lane closures or restricted driveway access associated with the work will be notified by letter, door hanger or personal visit at least 72 hours in advance. Normal work hours are from 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. on weekdays, excluding major holidays. However, in some instances, there may be night, weekend or expanded weekday hours associated with this project. Originally scheduled for completion at the end of April 2018, the construction is now expected to last through August 2018, with work on the City of Clarkston’s Streetscape project to continue beyond that date.

Clarkston Police Response to Domestic Dispute Leads to Manhunt and Stolen Property Recovery On Monday, February 26, 2018 the U.S. Marshals Service executed a search at an apartment within the Clarkston Station Apartments located on Montreal Road in Clarkston, Georgia. The target of that search, Anthony Vaughn (Black, Male, 35 yrs. old), has multiple active warrants throughout the metro Atlanta area. Although Anthony Vaughn was not located at that time, the U.S. Marshals notified the City of Clarkston Police Department (CPD) that the apartment in question appeared to be full of numerous stolen items. Based upon the information obtained from the U.S. Marshals and other information gathered by the City of Clarkston Police Department, detectives obtained a search warrant for the apartment. During the search, countless valuables were recovered ranging from credit cards, identifications, electronics, illegal drugs, sunglasses and purses. Many items have been traced back to the owners and confirmed to have been involved in theft type crimes throughout Georgia. Multiple articles have been traced to Conyers, Gwinnett County, Forsyth County, Alpharetta, Sandy Springs, Biloxi MS, and other jurisdictions. The City of Clarkston Police Department Criminal Investigation Division is continuing to work with other agencies and is continuing to sort through the property. Detectives will be reaching out to identifiable property owners throughout the coming week(s). There are currently numerous warrants against the suspect, and CPD anticipates many more to follow.
