Project Updates, Public Works |

Ridge Lake Park. Construction has surpassed the halfway point for the new 22-acre passive at 5494 Cumming Highway (SR20). 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. Following the November 29thgroundbreaking, Reeves-Young (the city’s construction contractor for the improvements began clearing and grading through the end of 2022.  Many of the amenities for this first phase of construction were suggested by the public during open houses that we held in 2017 and 2018, shortly after the city acquired the tract of land.

Grading work is well underway, but winding down as the site takes shape. The building is dried-in and work is beginning on interior equipment and finishes. Also, the dam repair for the lower and upper pond should be completed very soon. The septic system will be installed during the month of June along with the dog park fence and building finishes.

Bowl Pond Improvements.         Intended to make this amenity more stable and usable, these improvements include replacing the failed pond outlet that regulates 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 is well under way. The walls and columns that define the terraces are nearing completion. The first part of the parking area has been poured. Sidewalks and pavers should be installed in the next couple of weeks.

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.
