Construction on Pedestrian Bridge Underway

Published

Pedestrian Bridge in Peachtree Corners

The Peachtree Parkway Pedestrian Bridge is now under construction thanks to the recent permit approval from the Georgia Department of Transportation. Construction is scheduled to continue for the next 14-16 months until completion.

Pedestrian Bridge in Peachtree Corners

It will be a steel, thrust arch bridge connecting the multi-use path on the west side to the east side of State Route 141 that separates the Town Center and Forum developments. The design of the pedestrian bridge is intended to be a tribute to Jones Bridge, which stretched across the Chattahoochee River for decades and served as a namesake for many of the amenities and roads in the Peachtree Corners community.

Concrete barricades have been installed along northbound and southbound Peachtree Parkway that provides protection between the construction work zone and vehicular traffic. Lane closures or traffic interruptions are not anticipated, but any construction activities that require impact to the vehicular lanes will be kept to a minimum during off-peak hours only, and no permanent or long-term lane closures will be involved.

Initial construction for this project will involve driving piles for the foundation of the structural towers on each side of the bridge. The structure itself is being manufactured now and it will be delivered and installed in Spring 2020.

The installation process will require lane closures over a weekend, and information on that process and plans for detours will be disseminated as that information is finalized and the calendar approaches the scheduled dates for the work.
