Due to delays with utility relocation efforts and prolonged right of way acquisition, Sandy Springs has made some changes to their existing contract with Construction 57 for the Roswell Road sidewalk improvement project.

The first phase of the project includes plans for sidewalks from Long Island Drive to Stewart Drive. The city has decided to extend the existing scope of the project from Stewart Drive to Wentworth Street.

Construction plans are complete and right of way has been obtained for this additional project area. Due to this additional work and utility delays on the current phase, the contract will be be extended by 180 days. The original plan called for construction to be complete in 350 days. Now it will be updated to 530 days.

This change adds $139,339 to the original contract fee of $1,174,425.
