The work to be completed includes, "long-awaited roundabouts along Peachtree Circle at The Prado and 15th Street." The following is the letter to the community in its entirety:
The final phase of the Ansley Park Traffic Calming Project is about to start. The long-awaited roundabouts along Peachtree Circle at The Prado and 15th Street are officially underway; construction begins shortly.
Funded in part by a GDOT Transportation Grant (which we were awarded many years ago), the APCA is working with the City of Atlanta to build the two roundabouts. Tunnell and Tunnell Landscape Architects (TTLA), the company hired by the APCA to oversee the newly completed four entrances along Piedmont, along with the Polo Drive sidewalk, has worked closely with GDOT engineers and plan reviewers to create intersections which respect the historic nature of Ansley Park's existing, islands, parks and roadways.
These new roundabouts include granite curbs, cobblestone pavers, and concrete sidewalks and ADA accessible ramps. They will also include new asphalt paving with standard road striping, crosswalk patterns and traffic signs. The plantings of low, evergreen cover, Bermuda sod and deciduous shade trees will be similar to that of the new Piedmont entrances. TTLA is working closely with the Ansley Park Beautification Foundation to preserve and protect the existing trees in both intersections. Please check the APCA website to see renderings of these two roundabouts.
Under the supervision of the City, and the ever watchful eye of the APCA and its consultants, SD & C Construction Company is expected to begin at The Prado and Peachtree Circle by the end of August, with that at 15th Street and Peachtree Circle some months later. The City of Atlanta expects the project to be finished in six to eight months.
As a courtesy, the APCA has asked that work begin no earlier than 7:30 a.m. and finish no later than 4:30p.m. No work will be done on weekends or holidays. Access through the intersections will be open during construction, but may be limited to one lane. Construction will not block access to driveways, nor store materials on sidewalks. During work periods, however, access may be limited from time to time because of repaving or other necessary work. Those affected will be notified 24 hours in advance.
Once again, we thank you for your patience during this lengthy design process and thank you in advance for your patience during the upcoming construction period.
