Construction Update: Bush Road at Medlock Bridge Road Project



Bush Road and Medlock Bridge Road

Improvement Work Temporarily Stalled

According to Louis Svehla, Communications Director for the City of Peachtree Corners, the city has been experiencing delays in the construction project that is underway to make improvements at the intersection of Medlock Bridge Road and Bush Road.

This is due to things that are beyond the city’s control, such as utility issues and the review being done by Gwinnett County. “There were several changes that the county made that have put us behind,” he said.

Despite everything, Svehla noted that construction is expected to begin again soon. He did caution, however that the outstanding issue that could continue to delay the job would be the ability for the county to obtain the correct products necessary to complete construction, due to supply chain issues.

“We do not have a firm date on when we expect construction to be completed as the product acquisition is a big question mark,” Svehla said. “If we can get the correct product, we feel the job can be done on a quicker time frame.”

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.
