Ridgewood Avenue will be closed at its intersection with Green Street from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. today.
Georgia Power will be in the area preparing to replace a power pole at the street corner. The road will be closed between Simmons and Green streets. Flaggers will be at the site directing traffic.
Bob Lewallen with Georgia Power said it’s possible the crews will be able to open one lane.
"If we can do that, that’s what we’re going to do — we’re going to open one lane to where they can go in and out," he said. That will depend on whether the crews can complete their work out of the roadway.
"I know it’s an inconvenience, and I’m sorry," Lewallen said. "But we’re going to work as fast as we can and get out of the way as soon as we can."
