A portion of Lenox Drive is currently closed due to a storm pipe failure following recent heavy rains.

Lenox Drive off Athens Highway in east Gainesville is closed as crews work to repair the roadway after a storm drain pipe failed.

Stan Aiken, senior civil engineer, said heavy rains caused a part of the road, located about 600 feet past Cannon Ridge Court, to be undermined. Public Works crews were called Tuesday to help with the damage, and a contractor is being brought in to repair the road, Aiken said.

Aiken said workers are still determine exactly what needs to be done, but he estimated the repairs to take a month.

A detour is posted for residents who need to get to the 2500 and 2600 blocks of the road.
