PTC briefs: bridge, tunnel project updates

Due to rainy and cold weather the completion date has been adjusted for construction of the path connections leading to the bridge over the CSX railroad tracks along Ga. Highway 54.

The deadline, which was supposed to be Feb. 2, has been extended to March 16 though the contractor thinks it can be finished earlier, city officials said this week.

The bridge and the tunnels to which it will connect have been complete for more than three years but they have been unusable because of the delay in getting the path connections.

Part of the most recent delay in the construction project was chalked up to the contractor not being able to shut down some lanes of traffic, officials said. A retaining wall has been built along the path adjacent to Ethan Allen furniture and a portion of the paths have been graded with the base laid down.

Bids solicited for tunnel

Peachtree City is seeking bids for the construction of path connections to the new tunnel under Ga. Highway 74.

Yet the city is still lacking two easements necessary for the project. The bids are expected to be considered by council in early March.
