Public Projects Construction Update – March 2023

Sugar Hill Greenway/ Gold Mine Park

With the help of our County partners, the community and other user groups, we officially opened these two projects on March 20, the first day of spring! The culmination of a lot of hard work by many people brought citizens, elected officials, employees and contractors together to enjoy this new amenity of which the City can be rightfully proud.

Ridge Lake Park. The construction has begun for the new park that will be on the 22 acres the city owns off Highway 20. Consisting of a parking area, rest room building with covered seating area, a dog park, pond improvements and trails; it will be the newest place to relax and unwind. Groundbreaking was held on November 29th. Many of the amenities in the park were suggested by the public during open houses that we held in 2017 and 2018.

Grading work is well underway. Underground plumbing and electrical services have been installed. The concrete slab and footings have been poured. Walls and roof will be constructed over the next two weeks. Also, work has begun on the dam repair for the lower pond.


Bowl Pond Improvements (Photos Below).         Intended to make this amenity more stable and usable, these improvements include replacing the failed outlet that regulates pond water level and prevents flooding, a new pavilion area for events, congregating or just relaxing. It will also have a new parking area that will serve as a load-in area for concerts and performances.

Construction has begun. The outlet control structure has been installed. Also, the pipes to control the level of water in the pond are in place and the pond liner has been re sealed. Work on the wall, sidewalk and terraces has begun. Grading for the parking area will start after that and will reduce the large dirt pile down to final grade.

Alton Tucker Blvd Extension.     The design work is complete and we have advertised for bids. This project will improve the intersection of Level Creek Rd and West Broad Street, as well as extending Alton Tucker to Highway 20 at the east end of the E Center property.

Street Paving and Repair.             The contract has been awarded to Georgia Paving for the 2022,2023 LMIG street project. We received bids from 8 companies to repave and repair 23 streets, a parking lot and a cemetery driveway. Work will begin later this month.
