Fulton sewer work to affect Sandy Springs streets

Construction that’s expected to continue into November of a new sewer main in Sandy Springs will require daily lane closures with flagmen and electronic message boards along Northridge Parkway and Dunwoody Place.

Work was to begin this week on two additional phases of the Cobb Diversion Line project, according to an announcement by Fulton County.

“Motorists should be prepared for eastbound lanes of Northridge Parkway from 400 Northridge to Dunwoody Place to be shut down,” Fulton said. “Along Dunwoody Place, northbound lanes from Northridge Parkway to Roswell Road will be closed to allow the work to proceed.”

Contractor John D. Stephens Inc. is building the sewer to divert up to 10 million gallons of wastewater per day to Cobb County while Fulton’s Big Creek Water Reclamation Facility in Roswell is expanded, a project expected to take three to four years. About seven miles of new mains are planned in Sandy Springs, Roswell and Cobb, as well as a new pump station.
