The city of Johns Creek is restricting access to a portion of Sargent Road as crews remove a large oak tree on the south side of the thoroughfare.
Traffic will be restricted between Findley Road and Carriage Parkway Way. The eastbound lane of Sargent Road is now open, but drivers are encouraged to find alternate routes until the road fully re-opens.
City spokesperson Doug Nurse said the re-opening could happen around 2 p.m.
The tree, which is on private property, had been struck by lightning and is potentially dangerous.
