PTC to close Lake Peachtree path bridge for a month

It will be a major inconvenience for many users of the golf cart path system in Peachtree City, but the path bridge spanning Lake Peachtree will close temporarily beginning March 12.

The closure is necessary so a contractor can remove the handrails along the bridge and replace them with brand new ones. It will take an estimated 30 days to complete the project, and the city will post maps and signs showing alternate routes, officials said.

The bridge will be re-opened for one day during that time frame to accommodate the Breast Cancer walk on March 29, officials said.

The $56,000 project was approved by council Feb. 6 as council selected the low bidder, Beatty Construction. The price was $12,000 over budget, but the city was able to transfer funds from the TDK bridge repair project which came in under budget.

The handrails have fallen into disrepair to the point where they must be replaced, according to city staff.

I read where this had been delayed

Due to not having all materials on hand. 30 days or so, going to push it well into spring now.

Any thoughts of widening it while it is shut down?

That would probably be a much bigger project...it is really not that big of a deal to wait on others to pass...slow down and relax...

Path Bridge

Why not make a temporary lane along side of the bridge and cut 54 eastbound to one lane? That way both sides of 54 could be jammed up.
