Fulton County to Break Ground on Old National Highway Sidewalk Improvement Project

Fulton County Public Works will break ground on new sidewalk improvements on Old National Highway on Wednesday, March 22, 2017 at 11:00 a.m.  The groundbreaking will take place in Parking Lot “A” at World Changers Ministries; 2500 Burdett Road College Park, GA 30349.

The project includes 5 to 6 feet of sidewalks on both sides of Old National Highway, from just north of Flat Shoals Road to Sullivan Road.  It will connect pedestrians to three planned activity centers, schools, parks and homes.  The project includes installation of curbs and gutters (where needed), drainage structures and pipes, concrete sidewalks, signing and marking, mast arms, landscaping and all associated Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) improvements.

"The Old National Phase I Sidewalk Project is a promise made and promise kept,” said Commissioner Emma I. Darnell.  “We appreciate all that staff has done with the County’s stakeholders to make this beginning a reality.”

The project budget totaled approximately $4.3 million.  The Georgia Department of Transportation provided $3,206,750.00. The City of College Park and Fulton County collaborated to provide a total of $1,126,478.00.

Construction on the project begins March 2017 and is expected to be completed by April 2018.
