Medlock Bridge-Bush Road Intersection Improvements to Begin this Spring



medlock bridge Road and Bush Road improvement

Intersection improvements are on the way for Bush Road at Medlock Bridge Road.  Operational improvements and upgrades to the traffic signal will be included, and the southbound Bush Road turn lanes will have increased capacity. 

The goal of the project is to improve vehicular and pedestrian safety and reduce congestion during peak hour travel. 

Construction is tentatively scheduled to begin in April 2020.  All existing travel lanes will be maintained during construction, but intermittent interruptions due to construction activity are possible but will be minimized to the greatest extent possible.   

Mayor and City Council approved a construction agreement with Vertical Earth, Inc. for just over $1.1 million.  Funding for the project will come from the 2017 SPLOST through an intergovernmental agreement with Gwinnett County.

Corley Road In Peachtree Corners to Be Temporarily Closed for Emergency Drainage Work



Corley Road

The City of Peachtree Corners Department of Public Works will be instituting a temporary emergency closure of Corley Road.

This closure is necessary to allow crews to repair underground stormwater infrastructure near 6458 Corley Road. 

The work will require Corley Road to be closed at this location beginning September 7 and lasting for an estimated 12-14 days.  Access to the area businesses will be limited but not restricted, and detours will be required. 

There is an abandoned railroad crossing located at this address.  For locations to the east, access can be made from Jimmy Carter Boulevard, State Route 140.  For all properties west of this address, and at the rail crossing, access can be made from Jones Mill Road to Mechanicsville Road to Corley Road.

Peachtree Corners Enlists IMS to Conduct Pavement Survey



Laser Crack Measurement System (LCMS-2)

Residents of Peachtree Corners will soon have an objective assessment of the town’s pavement. Using funds dedicated to infrastructure management, the City has contracted with Infrastructure Management Services (IMS) to conduct the pavement survey.

The company has over 30 years of experience in the field of pavement management and has helped municipalities throughout the United States and Canada. IMS will be responsible for completing an objective pavement condition survey as well as a budget and rehabilitation analysis.

IMS survey vehicles hit the streets in early October using their Laser Crack Measurement System (LCMS-2). The LCMS-2 is a 3D imaging sensor that collects continuous 3D pavement imagery along with rutting and roughness measurements.

How it works

The LCMS-2 will determine surface distresses including load cracking, block cracking, rutting, raveling, reflective cracking, loss of section, bleeding, edge distress and patched areas. Information will be collected on a segment-by-segment basis. The collected data and imagery will be linked to the City’s existing GIS data system.

Once the data has been collected, the City will create a work program using a Pavement Condition Index (PCI) that will rate road segments between poor and excellent. The City will then use the PCI rankings to create an infrastructure work plan based on actual road conditions.

This data-based planning will allow Peachtree Corners to provide more efficient and equitable repairs and maximize the City’s repair budget.
