Fulton to reimburse Johns Creek for State Bridge utility work

The Johns Creek City Council has approved an intergovernmental agreement with Fulton County to be reimbursed the costs of moving county water mains, hydrants, water meters and other facilities as part of the State Bridge Road widening project.

The project, from Camden Way to the Chattahoochee River, is in the right-of-way acquisition phase and ties into Gwinnett County’s widening of Pleasant Hill Road from the river to McClure Bridge Road, Chris Haggard, Johns Creek assistant public works director, said in an agenda report to the council.

“Rather than have Fulton manage that as a separate project, Fulton has agreed to enter an (intergovernmental agreement) whereby the city bids and manages the work as an aspect of the overall construction project and Fulton reimburses the city for the costs,” Haggard said.

Material and labor costs associated with the utility relocations are estimated to be up to $804,580. The actual dollar amount will be determined by construction bids received for the work. Information: https://bit.ly/2Rt9gw1
