Johns Creek approves contracts for Cauley Creek Park expansion

The Johns Creek City Council recently approved a $19,688,304 construction contract with Reeves Young for the Cauley Creek Park expansion.

The approval also came with a contract amendment to add the western half of the park elements at $1,899,297, a 5.27% construction contingency of $1,137,571, a $121,900 order for construction administration with Barge, a $65,250 order for materials testing with NOVA, a $1,126,000 contract with Musco for court and field lighting, and a $1,920,060 contract with FieldTurf for artificial turf on Fields 1 and 2.

Earlier this month the Johns Creek City Council discussed the challenge of higher construction costs since initial 2019 estimates due to inflation, supply chain disruptions, material cost increases, and labor shortages.

To proceed, the city has shifted some funding from other parks projects to allow them to move forward on the Cauley Creek Park plans, while not abandoning the city’s overall commitment to recreation and parks as a quality-of-life issue. Funding for those parks projects is expected to come from other sources.

The initial focus of the Cauley Creek Park construction will be on the western half of the park property with the vehicular bridge, roadway, parking area, and restroom building for the 5K staging area on the Quail Hollow side of the park.
