Hwy 54 West Intersection Construction

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

  • MacDuff Parkway/Hwy 54 (SPLOST Project #5) – Construction continues (new equipment, detection system, signal heads).

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

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.
