2017 Project 39: Lake Peachtree Spillway Multi-Use Path Bridge

Status: Completed

Project Number: 39

Category: Lake Peachtree Dam/Spillway

Location: Lake Peachtree

Proposed Project Year: 2018

Original Project Budget: $ 800,000

Project/Goal Description

The current spillway at Lake Peachtree Dam is scheduled to be replaced beginning in September 2017 (with $2 million in funding from the County per the 2015 Peachtree City / Fayette County Franchise Agreement). This project identifies a two-lane multi-use path bridge crossing over the new spillway and associated path relocations. Providing a two-lane bridge over the new spillway will enhance multi-use path access for residents visiting Shakerag, McIntosh Place, Gathering Place, Amphitheater, Community Garden, etc. The multi-use path bridge will enhance public safety by eliminating the very narrow sidewalk crossing over the Kelly Rd bridge that is often shared by carts and pedestrians.

December 2022 Progress Update:  Project was completed in 2018 with a Dedication Ceremony held on 10/18/2018.  

SPLOST Actuals Total: $810,135.80

SPLOST Funds Over/Under Budget: $(10,135.80)

The original budget estimates were developed without the benefit of final engineering drawings; therefore, changes had to be made for constructability while restraining overall costs.
