CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS & TRAFFIC ADVISORIES


Utility Projects

  • UPDATED!! NuLink is installing fiber optic lines in/along in Hamptons Corner and Calgary Place and will be moving on to the Fairways, Masters Square, Cypress Point, and Prestwick in the coming weeks. 


Hwy 54 West Intersection Construction – UPDATED!!

The contractors were able to take advantage of the great weather last week, so paving is complete for both intersections!! 

  • Planterra Way/Hwy 54 (SPLOST Project #4) - Construction continues (new equipment, detection system, signal heads, and a new mast arm).
  • MacDuff Parkway/Hwy 54 (SPLOST Project #5) – Construction continues (new equipment, detection system, signal heads).

Both projects will have work occurring primarily in the evening and overnight to minimize the impact on traffic, and both should be completed by early April (weather influenced). 




Lake Peachtree Spillway Replacement Continues through June 2018

Foundation work continues on the spillway, and the first two piano key components of the weir have been poured.  The contractor hopes to be able to raise the lake level by two more feet after the foundation is completed, with the goal of having the lake returning to full pool at the end of May while the project wraps up.  Work at this time does not include the path bridge that will cross Flat Creek at the Spillway (that is a separate project, although the foundations are included in the spillway foundation).  More information, including Mr. Davis’s January 4 presentation, is available at http://www.peachtree-city.org/index.aspx?nid=1123  

  • Path Detour in effect – NO TRESPASSING!! The spillway construction zone path detour area is a “No Trespassing” zone and will be enforced. The map at http://www.peachtree-city.org/DocumentCenter/View/10447 shows the alternate routes path users will take until the spillway construction zone is cleared.  Automobile drivers on Fishers Luck are asked to use extra caution and reduce speed in the coming months due to the carts sharing roadway.
  • DO NOT DRIVE ON Lake Bed – Please keep cars and golf carts off the lake bed.  They sink in the mud (proven two more times last week).
