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

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.

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

SPLOST Actuals Total: $810,136

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.
