Project Timeline:

October 2017

Sugar Hill Greenway Project, Phase I. The project is moving into utility coordination and right-of-way acquisition as the design nears its conclusion. We expect to get right-of-way and easement documents soon to begin this phase of the project while we also resolve a few minor conflicts with driveways and alignment challenges. The Friends of the Greenway have met a couple of times this summer and fall to stay engaged in the project and build momentum going into the construction phase of the project.

The first phase of this project connecting the city’s downtown with the two parks on Level Creek and Peachtree Industrial Boulevard along with some new stops on Level Creek Road and Whitehead Road is in the surveying stage as we have been coordinating access with a large number of land owners, state, and local agencies. The Friends of the Greenway group held a site walk on April 11 which allowed them to get acquainted with the design considerations, challenges, and participate in the layout process. While we make progress on the design, the goal is to have the first phase under construction later this summer.
