SNELLVILLE – Construction on the Oak Road sidewalk project will begin Monday.
Road crews will place a sidewalk from Scenic Highway to Mountain View Road.
Contractor Multiplex, LLC will begin survey work this week and engineering firm Clark Patterson Lee will oversee construction for the city.
Work will begin from both the Mountain View Road and Scenic Highway ends and proceed toward the middle of the 4,800-foot project.
Oak Road is scheduled to remain open throughout the 120-day project, but city officials are asking all motorists to be alert and drive slowly for their safety and the safety of the workers.
Due to topography of the new sidewalk area, many loads of dirt will be required and it is anticipated Oak Road will often be flagged and reduced to sections of one-lane roadway where the work is taking place.
Construction during rush hour times will be avoided if at all possible.
Please contact City Manager Butch Sanders at 770-985-3516 with any questions.
