Traffic delays possible from Mason Mill repaving, CDC conference

Emory Report | March 29, 2016

A planned road repaving project and a national conference could impact traffic conditions for motorists traveling to and from Emory this week.

A repaving project began on Mason Mill Road, just north of the Emory campus, on Monday, March 28, and is expected to continue through the remainder of the week and possibly into next week, depending on the weather, according to Emory’s Department of Transportation and Parking Services.

Motorists traveling in the vicinity of Mason Mill Road can expect delays, as flaggers and pilot cars guide commuters through the area. Work will start each day shortly after 9 a.m. and conclude by 4 p.m.

Traffic congestion is also expected to rise along the Clifton Road corridor on Friday, April 1, when the U.S. Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) hosts a Zika Action Plan (ZAP) Summit.

The summit is expected to draw more than 300 participants from around the country to discuss preparedness for the Zika virus.

Most participants are expected to arrive between 7:45 a.m. and 8:15 a.m., with a steady inflow starting at 7 a.m. and ending around 9:30 a.m. The summit is scheduled to end at 3 p.m., with most participants departing between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m.
