Johns Creek OKs $4M State Bridge Road widening

The Johns Creek City Council has awarded contracts valued at more than $4.2 million for the widening of State Bridge Road from Camden Way to the Chattahoochee River.

The council approved a $4.03 million construction contract to CMES Inc., and a $189,245 construction engineering and inspection task order for Moreland Altobelli.

The work is being coordinated with Gwinnett County, which is widening Pleasant Hill Road — the highway State Bridge connects to — on the Gwinnett side of the Chattahoochee, staff said in a report to the council. The project also includes a pedestrian bridge over the river.

Available funds include $3.4 million in TSPLOST monies, $1.5 million from the Georgia Transportation Infrastructure Bank, $750,000 from Gwinnett County’s bridge construction and contingency fund, and $684,234 from Fulton County for waterline relocation, staff said.

The council also formally accepted the funds from Gwinnett and Fulton counties and authorized construction expenditures of $4.62 million, which include a $403,253 contingency.
