Sub-Project #2 consists of approximately 1.8 miles of multi-use concrete trail with necessary appurtenances. It includes necessary land acquisition efforts for a non-automobile pathway along the existing rail bed corridor that will begin at the intersection of Old Winterville Road proceed east generally following the abandoned rail line and ending at Hancock Road. This section includes a bridge over GDOT’s proposed Loop 10 on-ramp. The Project Concept for Sub-Project #2 was approved by M&C on July 5, 2016. All Property between Old Winterville Road and the Loop has been acquired.
On May 5, 2020 M&C awarded the construction contract for Sub-Project #2 to Georgia Development Partners. Notice to Proceed was issued July 16, 2020. Contractor has prepared 600’ of trail section for concrete between ER Snell and Harris Trucking along Winterville Rd. An additional 1,000’ of trail has been completed between Winterville Rd. and Hancock Rd. Steel casing for future sewer lines has been installed.
Contractor has completed the installation of the 16’’ recycled water line. The recycled water line is a joint effort with the Public Utility department to serve industrial customers with a lower cost alternative for process system water needs instead of potable water thereby conserving energy and cost in the treatment systems. The pedestrian bridge fabrication is underway, with delivery of the bridge expected by the end of May. The contractor has installed both abutments for the new pedestrian bridge. Tree removal and trail installation activities are ongoing. Substantial completion date is anticipated for October 2021.
