Just what you needed on a Friday.

Emergency utility work that began Friday afternoon on Ga. 9/Peachtree Road at Pharr Road is expected to create havoc for evening rush hour in Buckhead, according to the Georgia Department of Transportation.

Georgia Power is conducting “immediate, necessary” maintenance to an underground cable to ensure continued reliable service in the area, according to a GDOT press release.

Work is expected to continue throughout the day and overnight. Motorists are advised to seek alternate routes. Or here’s another idea: take MARTA.
