Construction of Phase I was initiated in March 2015 and completed in July 2015. On January 2, 2018 M&C approved the Preliminary Plans for Phase II. Phase II of the roadway improvement project at the intersection of S Milledge Avenue and Whitehall Road. The project replaces the current intersection with a single lane roundabout with sidewalks, divider islands, and stormwater improvements. Funding for the construction of Phase II is being provided by TSPLOST 2018.
Updates: On August 7, 2018, Mayor and Commission voted to award the construction contract to Vertical Earth, Inc. A notice to proceed is scheduled to be issued on or prior to September 14, 2018. The contractor continues construction activities while maintaining traffic control through the heavily traveled roadways. All scheduled utility relocation has been complete, with the exception of AT&T which is scheduled to be complete by the end of May. The contractor has developed a staging plan that will not require the intersection to be closed completely; the remainder of the project will be constructed with minor traffic delays.
