2017 Project 11: New Path Connection – Flat Creek Nature Area (Crosstown to PAC)

Status: Completed

Project Number: 11

Category: Multi-Use Path System

Location: South Peachtree City

Proposed Project Year: 2020

Project Budget: $ 217,000

Project/Goal Description: New path connecting Crosstown Rd. along the HWY 74 S corridor to Peachtree City Athletic Complex (PAC) adjacent to the Flat Creek Nature Area (western side). The path will be constructed using Best Management Practices to minimize disturbance to the nature area.

2022 Progress Update: This project was completed in 2020.   Public work performed the design, construction, and easement acquisition for this project.  In addition, Public Works administered the wetland permitting for this approximately 1.4-mile long path extension. This path is crucial to the connectivity of the path system because it now offers a convenient and safe route for residents of the southern parts of the city to connect to Crosstown and beyond. 

SPLOST Actuals Total: $246,469

SPLOST Funds Over/Under Budget: $(29,469)

The original budget estimates were developed without the benefit of final engineering drawings; therefore, changes had to be made for constructability while restraining overall costs.  For example, the amount of rock needed to backfill due to poor soil conditions was much larger than anticipated.
