The 1200 block of 12th Street will be closed until 5 p.m. today while workers repair a Georgia Power pole leaning into the street.

According to Georgia Power spokesperson Carol Boatright, the pole was aged and had to be replaced.

The repair will cut off power to one nearby church, but no other customers will be affected, Boatright said.

Drivers can use Florence Street as a detour, according to the Augusta Traffic Engineering Division.
