H.T. Edwards Center Sidewalk - through the Safe Routes to School Program

The H.T. Edwards Learning Center hosts a wide range of school programs and related activities.  These programs often involve students traveling from Clarke Central High School and the West Broad Street School campus.  Most of these streets within the neighborhood bounded by Rocksprings St., Baxter St., and West Broad St. did not have sidewalks, making walking between these locations challenging for pedestrians.

This construction project includes the construction of 1,140 feet of sidewalk along the est side of W. Hancock Avenue and 990 feet of sidewalk along the south side of Hills Chapel St., along with retaining walls, accessibility ramps, crosswalks, and minor drainage improvements

The contractor, Georgia Development Partners, is currently excavating for the construction of a retaining wall on Hills Chapel Rd, installing storm drain infrastructure, and installing sidewalk.  Final completion is expected in May 2018.
