UPDATE: Decatur Utilities says the maintenance work on Sixth Avenue between Point Mallard Parkway and Knight Street SE has been postponed due to weather.

--------

ORIGINAL STORY:

Crews in Decatur are working on sewage lines on 6th Avenue SE between Point Mallard Parkway and Knight Street SE.

Monday and Tuesday's work will divert traffic from the outermost northbound lane to the inner most. Once work wraps up Monday morning, it will pick up again Monday night and all through the night.

At the same time, Decatur Utilities is dealing with miles on miles of sewer lines that need to be replaced. It's a project that might take three decades to complete but comes after millions of sewage sanitary overflow was reported.

The city says right now, there are no overflows.

The city asks drivers to be aware of workers on the side of the road.
