Brookhaven, GA, June 10, 2017 – The Post Reports – The City of Brookhaven will begin a storm drainage improvement project on Osborne Road beginning June 12 that is expected to last through the end of August, weather permitting. During this period, the City indicates northbound traffic on Osborne Road from Peachtree Road will be routed to Hermance Drive to Windsor Parkway during active construction, generally between 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Southbound lanes will remain open.
Due to the possibility of traffic delays in both directions, the City recommends that motorists avoid Osborne Road if possible and seek alternate routes.
Brookhaven Councilmembers approved a $343,529.52 contract during their Tuesday, May 9th Meeting, a Phase 1 contract with Blount Construction to relieve street drainage issues along Osborne Road, from Grove Street to Kendrick Drive.
“The sheet flow and subsequent flooding conditions on Osborne Road have degraded significantly with each passing year due to increased development on Peachtree Road and rebuilds of single family residences along the Osborne Road corridor,” says the City. “A Stormwater Analysis Report was completed June 2015 which outlined recommendations for addressing the flooding issues in this area.”
Blount Construction was the lowest bidder between three of the City’s “On-Call” contractors. GS Construction’s bid was $463,706.45 and Integrated Construction & Nobility, that has been busy installing 3 bridges in the City, came in more than double Blount’s bid at $700,999.92.
The City indicates the project will be funded out of the Stormwater Fund.
Details of the project are below.
