Alpharetta awards contracts for Bethany roundabouts

The Alpharetta City Council has awarded a $3.2 million contract to CMES Inc. to build two roundabouts on Bethany Road.

The council also approved an intergovernmental agreement with Fulton County for water main improvements within the project limits (Fulton will reimburse the city $728,686 for the work), and a $298,130 construction management, engineering and inspection services contract to Atkins North America Inc.

The roundabouts are proposed for Bethany at Mid-Broadwell and Mayfield roads. Plans also call for construction of a 6-foot-wide sidewalk along the south side of Mayfield from Bethany to Chantilly Drive. CMES submitted the lowest of six bids for the project, according to a staff report to the council.

Total estimated construction costs of $3.7 million includes $225,000 for right-of-way costs, staff said. The project will be funded by a combination of bond proceeds and TSPLOST monies.

Work is to begin when the CMES contract is finalized and executed; anticipated completion date is no more than 300 days from the notice to proceed.
