Sandy Springs Councilman Gabriel Sterling said on Sept. 23 that a downed tree has caused the closure of Spalding Drive at Misty Oaks Drive. He posted the following message on his Facebook account:

“Spalding Drive at Misty Oaks Drive is closed due to tree that came down and took out the power lines. Y’all should use Dunwoody Club and Ball Mill Roads as alternates. Repairs should take most of today to wrap up.

“Brandon Mill Road has been reopened to thru traffic. It hasn’t been paved yet. Please use extra caution driving over the concrete (it is rough, but safe to drive on). City of Atlanta Watershed Management hopes to be able to pave both Brandon Mill and North Mill Roads mid-to-late next week. North Mill will remain closed to Marsh Court. Home owners will thankfully be able to access the road.”
