Vote postponed on study to widen Crosstown Road

Funds to study a potential widening of Crosstown Road in Peachtree City are temporarily on hold.

The Fayette County Commission was ready Thursday night to vote on funding for that study, but the matter was postponed after the formal request and documentation from the city were not received in time for the meeting.

Peachtree City officials think the study will cost about $20,000. The city wants the county to pay for the study with funds remaining from the 2004 countywide transportation special local option sales tax. Read More»

Hwy. 74-Paschall cart path tunnel now open

The cart path tunnel underneath Ga. Highway 74 at Paschall Road is now officially open.

The tunnel structure itself has been finished since the widening of Hwy. 74 from two to six lanes was completed last year. But the city had to go in behind the project to attach the cart path approaches on both sides of the tunnel.

This turned out to be a more lengthy effort than originally anticipated because of right of way issues involving not just the tunnel but the stretch of path that goes northward from the tunnel toward The Avenue shopping center. Read More»
