Alpharetta OKs contract to build new sidewalks

The Alpharetta City Council has hired A1 Contracting LLC to construct sidewalks and close gaps on Charlotte Drive and Providence Road.

Plans call for about 1,910 linear feet of new sidewalk on the west side of Charlotte between two existing walks, from south of Old Place Drive to north of Lillian Drive, according to a staff report to the council. The project will ensure a contiguous sidewalk from Mid Broadwell to Rucker roads.

Also, two gaps will be closed on the west side of Providence: About 2,400 linear feet from the city limits to an existing walk north of Bates Road; and roughly 575 linear feet from an existing walk south of Bates to an existing walk north of Mayfield Road.

The completion of these segments will create a contiguous sidewalk from the city limits to Mayfield.

A1 Contracting’s bid of $926,423 for the Charlotte and Providence work was the lowest of seven bids received, staff said. The council also approved spending up to $20,000 to relocate a utility pole on Providence.
