CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS & TRAFFIC ADVISORIES

  • Golfview Stormwater & Sewer Project Begins April 9 - Some road closures will be required.  The contractor for the City of Peachtree City and the Peachtree City Water and Sewerage Authority will begin a major sewer/stormwater project in the Golfview neighborhood on Monday, April 9.  The project involves new lines going through the easement from Golfview Drive (at 618 Golfview) near Cockspur Court, crossing just west of 210 Oakmount and just west of 303 Pinemount.  Each of these roadways will require temporary closures to accommodate the pipe replacement work, but each street provides alternate access routes for those on either side of the closures.  The entire project should be completed by the end of August.  Please call 770-487-5183 for more information.
  • NuLink will be installing fiber optic lines in/along in Meadow Run, Glen Clarin, Timberlay, South Peachtree Pkwy, and The Preserve (begins May 1).
  • AT&T will be installing new underground cable lines throughout Planterra Ridge beginning in May.  The contractor will restore sod/grass in the right-of-way by completion of the project. 


Mcdonough Road in Fayetteville CLOSED on Wednesday, April 4

McDonough Road in Fayetteville will be CLOSED to thru traffic, from County Line Rd to Hwy 54, for a SPLOST project; pipe replacement on Wednesday, April 4. The road is scheduled to reopen on Thursday, April 5, 2018.  Please contact publicworks@fayettecountyga.gov for more information.


Hwy 54 Repaving, 54 W Traffic Projects

The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) has informed the City that they will begin the repaving of Highway 54 between Peachtree City and Fayetteville during the second week of April (April 9).  The project will begin at both ends, and will start in Peachtree City on Highway 54 West.  Milling and paving work will take place primarily at night to reduce the impact on traffic flow.

SPLOST Projects on 54 W Wrapping Up

  • 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 later this month (weather influenced). 


Lake Peachtree Spillway Replacement Continues through June 2018

As of March 15, the project was behind schedule by 3-4 weeks due to the full week of freezing temperatures in January and the amount of since the project started in September.  This has moved the “substantial completion” estimate (when the lake can begin to completely refill) to late June.  However, the contractor is working extended workdays and weekends, and if the weather holds, they may be able to regain a week or more.  The expected completion of the foundation, when the lake level can be raised by two additional feet, is now late April.  View Mr. Davis’ presentation at http://www.peachtree-city.org/DocumentCenter/View/11023

  • 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).
