Construction Schedule

The current schedule of remaining activities is as follows, weather permitting:

The relocation of utility lines by AT&T is currently underway. Recent timelines for this activity were extended, due to unforeseen difficulties experienced by AT&T with underground work. Once AT&T completes their relocation work, Georgia Power is scheduled to remove the remainder of the old utility poles. This process could take approximately 2 weeks or less. Upon completion of the utility relocation work by AT&T and Georgia Power, the City will resume roadwork to install raised crosswalks, sidewalks, and pedestrian signals at the intersections, along with the median, resurfacing, and striping. The roadway remains open at this time to avoid unnecessary traffic concerns. The majority of the work by AT&T is occurring on Bellemeade Avenue and not creating traffic concerns. Police officers/flaggers are in place to assist with traffic movement, if needed when there are lane blockages due to utility work. For additional information, please contact the Project Manager, Greg Holder, in the City of Atlanta's Department of Public Works at (404) 330-6208. Ongoing updates may be found at
