Bridlepath Lane- “The City had a culvert pipe collapse during the significant rain recently experienced. This caused the right of way above the pipe to collapse as well. Staff is working to replace the pipe, which may take several months. Until then, this section of Bridlepath Lane will remain closed to vehicular traffic, please use the detour route shown. The cart path on Bridlepath Lane was not affected and will remain open. Additional updates will be provided as they become available.
The stormwater drainage pipes underneath the section of Bridlepath Lane between Peachtree Parkway and Stevens Entry consist of twin 48” diameter corrugated metal pipe (CMP) that were installed in the early 1970’s. The design lifespan of CMP is twenty-five years. The City’s National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Phase II Permit and Stormwater Management Plan administered by the Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) requires the City to inspect 20% of our stormwater infrastructure annually such that 100% of our stormwater infrastructure is inspected in a five-year cycle. The stormwater pipes underneath this section of Bridlepath Lane were last inspected in 2018. The 2018 inspection indicated that the pipes exhibited moderate, but not severe corrosion. No other structural deficiencies were noted during the 2018 inspection. Most likely, a pipe band (a metal collar that connects two adjoining pipes together) failed. The failure caused two adjacent pipe segments on the upstream end of the system to become vertically separated. The vertical separation of pipe segments allowed for the water, that would normally pass through the pipe, to scour or wash away the soil from around the pipe resulting in the medium size scour/washout that is currently present.
