Old Alabama Rd Update: Another Change Order…
Old Alabama Rd Construction was suspended last month, and the residents are waiting for the contractor CW Matthews to be back on site.
GDOT needed to do a change order to eliminate the left turn lane into the Atlanta Athletic Club parcel. It defeated the purpose of the construction project as it limits the 2 stacking left turn lanes onto SR141 north.
A resolution was signed late Monday. It is unknown at this point how much are the costs incurred for the change order. Drawings and Studies are needed prior to construction resuming.
The constant theme in Johns Creek is poor planning and foresight.
Atlanta Regional Commission reported, GDOT received federal funds $3,254,071 in FY 2015 for this project.
The originally cost in 2007, $2,368,833.
Current cost, $9,499,697.
According to GDOT, the project is scheduled to be completed in May of ’17, however our contractor has committed to be complete by the end of this calendar year. That is of course, without any further unexpected issues.
