Progress along the President Street and General McIntosh Boulevard project continues.  Activities continue along Randolph Street (south of President Street) to replace old curb and gutter and repave the roadway. Atlanta Gas and Light continue to install new sections of their relocated 12" high pressure gas main. Utility crews continue the work of boring new water utility lines underneath General McIntosh and the rail road on the far east end of the project (heavy equipment can be seen just off President Street on the east side of the Truman Parkway). The General Contractor, McLendon Enterprises, has completed demolition of the old General McIntosh Boulevard roadway and began hauling fill material and placing this fill along a portion of General McIntosh Boulevard. This fill is the first signs of the future elevated roadway which is to be established.

Over the next week, weather permitting, the contractor plans to continue placing fill along General McIntosh Boulevard, and continue utility line relocations and installations along General McIntosh and the far east end of the project. The contractor also plans to place asphalt along Randolph Street (south of President St.) to form this finished road surface.
