Recent rainfall has provided wet conditions along the project site.  Despite these conditions, crews continue to make progress on the project. 

Atlanta Gas and Light continue to make progress with the relocation of their 12 inch High Pressure Gas Main.  AGL is currently making tie-ins at two separate locations along the southern shoulder of President St.  These tie-ins connect the new gas main with the existing line and will provide the required utility line relocation for future construction activities on the south side of President.  AGL is also currently working on replacing their gas main along and underneath the new General McIntosh Blvd.  AGL plans to complete their gas main relocations next week.  The General Contractor continues to coordinate activities with AT&T and other utility providers to ensure these lines are properly relocated to prevent damage during construction.  A steel casing continues to be installed on the far east end of the project (just east of Truman Parkway) to accommodate a water main tie-in within the median of President St.  Boring of the casing under President St. east bound lanes has been complete.  The contractor is now working on the installation of the casing from the southern shoulder of President St. to the back of the right of way (going underneath the rail road).  This work is scheduled to be completed this week, and will allow for the start of construction on the new water main as well as a new 24” sewer force main along the back of the road right of way.

In addition to these activities, the contractor is bringing in an additional crew this week to begin utility (water, sewer, storm) line replacements and new installations near the intersection of General McIntosh and Randolph Street. 

Randolph Street (just south of President Street) is scheduled to receive a final paved surface next week.
